We’re being blackmailed hostages: Gerashchenko offers to supply the demand for the immediate release of all prisoners

Member, humanitarian sub-group of the Trilateral contact group on conflict settlement in Donbas, first Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Iryna Gerashchenko said that the issue of the release of the hostages blocked for a year.

She said this in an interview with TSN.

According to her, it is very important to achieve implementation of the Minsk agreements by Russia and its puppets, from the point of security and to humanitarian point. She added that you need to put a mandatory requirement to immediately release all prisoners: “those political prisoners of the Kremlin, who are in Russian prisons, and those in the occupied territories for three years sitting, and the Crimean Tatars”.

“It is not good that we have this year blocked the liberation of hostages. We’re being blackmailed hostages. And it is obvious that the Ukrainian hostages in the Donbas can’t wait for the peacekeepers, because this process is not tomorrow. They should pull out today. And my vision is that we should put a mandatory requirement to immediately release all” – said Gerashchenko.

Also Gerashchenko recalled the last sentences of the occupying power in the Kremlin. Among them one of the leaders of the Crimean Tatar people, was convicted in anacoana Crimea Ilmi Umerov and the Deputy Chairman of the Majlis of the Crimean Tatar people Ahtem Chiygoz.

“And for the last few weeks of the occupation the power of the Kremlin made a few terrible sentences. Ilmi Umerov (one of the leaders of the Crimean Tatar people, convicted in anacoana Crimea – ed.) two years. He has Parkinson’s disease. For the two years in the colony means… It simply means inaccessible to treatment. This means that so they just kill the person who just has a voice. Also Ahtem Chiygoz, Deputy Chairman of the Majlis of the Crimean Tatar people – ed.), who received eight years. For what? Only Pro-Ukrainian position. They close his mouth all to break the entire Crimean Tatar community”, – said Gerashchenko.

Gerashchenko considers that Ukraine has every day to put pressure on partners is a humanitarian issue.

“And it is indecent that Ukraine is talking about it. Yes, there is the European Union’s response to the verdict Umerov, but this is very small. Every day we have to push our clients from the humanitarian issue,” she commented.
