The Ukrainian parliament's representative for human rights, Valeriya Lutkovska, has once again inquired her Russian counterpart Tatyana Moskalkova about 19-year-old Ukrainian national Pavlo Hryb held in Russian custody.

"Because the previous letter of Russian ombudsperson Tatyana Moskalkova did not contain any information on the measures taken in the interest of Hryb – there was only general information – Lutkovska wrote an additional letter to her Russian counterpart, in which she described in detail a number of violations of Hryb's rights," the Ukrainian ombudsman's website reads.

Pavlo Hryb was kidnapped from Belarus by Russian special services in late August 2014. A court in Krasnodar arrested him on charges of plotting terror acts initially until 17 October and then until 4 January 2018.
