Ukrainian MFA condemns Iryna Danilovych's "sentence"

29.12.2022, 11:10

The Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the Russian occupation authorities in the temporarily occupied Crimea for "sentencing" Ukrainian citizen journalist Iryna Danilovych to 7 years in prison. This is stated in the MFA's address.

"Iryna Danilovych was accused of 'illegally storing explosives' – a 'traditional' fake accusation that the Russian occupation authorities use against Ukrainian activists," the Ministry said, adding that Iryna had been repeatedly put under psychological and physical pressure.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs also reminded that in their December 15, 2022 Resolution "Situation of human rights in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ukraine", the UN General Assembly condemned the actions of the Russian occupation authorities, namely their actions against Iryna Danilovych, and expressed grave concern over the ongoing arbitrary detentions, arrests, and sentences handed to Ukrainian citizens for acting or speaking out against Russia's aggression in Ukraine.

"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine calls on the international community and Ukraine's partners, including our International Crimean Platform partners, to keep excercising pressure on Russia for it to release all Ukrainian citizens unlawfully imprisoned by the occupation regime in Crimea immediately, and to introduce sanctions ragainst the officials involved in the persecution of Ukrainian citizens," stated the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

As IMI reported, on December 28, the occupation court of Feodosia, Crimea, sentenced citizen journalist and human rights activist Iryna Danilovych to seven years in prison on charges of illegal storage and manufacture of explosives under Part 1 of Art. 222.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.
