Ep. 33 - Ukrainian Prisoners of Kremlin: Who Are They?

September 17, 2020

Despite the prisoner exchanges between Russia and Ukraine, at least 100 prisoners are still being held captive in Russia and occupied Crimea, with several hundred also likely held in occupied Donbas. Learn more about their situations in the latest UkraineWorld podcast with Olexandra Matviychuk, a Ukrainian human rights activist and head of the board of the Centre for Civil Liberties.


This podcast is produced within a project implemented by Internews-Ukraine with the support of the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation, in cooperation with the Center for Civil Liberties and other partners. The project is part of the global #PrisonersVoice campaign, which aims to draw global attention to Ukrainian political prisoners who have been or are still in Russian prisons, and to the Russian Federation's violation of international human rights law.
