Convicted in Russia Ukrainians Gennady Afanasyev and Yuri Soloshenko were sent to Moscow due to their possible extradition to Ukraine.

This was reported by a member of the Supervisory Board of Moscow Zoya Svetova.

“They arrived in Moscow on May 2: Afanasyev flew by plane from Syktyvkar, and Yuri Soloshenko arrived by train from Nizhny Novgorod,” she said.

According to Svetova, the members of this organization visited the Ukrainians in the remand prison of Lefortovo.

“Nobody knows what they are doing there. The official version says about investigation and litigation,” she said.

She noted that “no investigative activities had been conducted”.

According to her, the Ukrainians don’t know the purpose of their arrival to Moscow, too.

Meanwhile, on her view, “there is a big doubt that the one day transfer of two Ukrainian prisoners is a simple accidental coincidence.”

On May 1 it became known that convicted in the Russia Crimean Gennady Afanasyev had signed the necessary documents for his extradition to Ukraine.

Afanasyev was sentenced to seven years of imprisonment and is serving his sentence at a penal colony in the Komi Republic.
