The Russian side has blatantly violated norms and principles of international law from the brutal kidnapping of Pavlo Gryb in Gomel city (Republic of Belarus) on 24 August 2017, to the failure to provide information on his location for a considerable period of time, unlawful detention in the cities of Krasnodar and Rostov-on-Don, denial of medical assistance up to the unlawful sentence.
As a consequence of received serious diseases and a critical health condition Pavlo Gryb might not survive the transferring and detention in inhumane conditions of the Russian penitentiary system.
We demand to rescind the unlawful sentence in case of Pavlo Gryb, provide him with the constant medical assistance and ensure his release and unhindered return to Ukraine.
