Moscow, July 19 – AIF-Moscow.
In the State Duma, commented on the proposal of Kiev about the simultaneous release of the head of the RIA Novosti portal Ukraine Kirill Vyshinsky and the convict in the Russian Federation for preparing the terrorist attack Oleg Sentsov, RIA Novosti reports.
Earlier, this initiative was made by the press secretary of the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky Yulia Mendel.
According to the first deputy chairman of the Committee on CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration and Relations with Compatriots Viktor Vodolatsky, the proposal to simultaneously release Sentsov and Vyshinsky is incorrect.
The parliamentarian noted that Sentsov is the criminal who prepared the terrorist act, for which he received a term. In turn, Vyshinsky, fulfilling his journalistic duty, did not break anything and is not a criminal.
Recall that Sentsov was sentenced in Russia to 20 years in prison for organizing terrorist acts in the Crimea. The journalist Vyshinsky is currently accused of treason in Ukraine. On this charge he faces up to 15 years in prison.
