20.10.2016 - Russian Embassy comment

Foreign Secretary Johnson found it appropriate to raise at the Parliament the issue of Sentsov and Kolchenko, demanding their “immediate release”. As theirs is a closed criminal case involving proven terrorist intent, we call on British side to respect the decision of Russian judicial authority.
