February 25, 2020

The Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights, Liudmyla Denisova, appealed to the Russian Commissioner for Human Rights Tatyana Moskalkova with a request to take measures to confirm the whereabouts of Halyna Dovhopola, who is suspected of “working for the Ukrainian intelligence services.” This was reported by Denisova via her Facebook page.

Since the beginning of February 2020, there is no official confirmation of exactly where on the territory of the Russian Federation Ukrainian citizen Halyna Dovhopola is incarcerated. The last known place of her detention is “ pre-trial detention center 2 of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia in Moscow.”

“I appeal to the Commissioner for Human Rights of the Russian Federation, Tatyana Moskalkova, to take measures to confirm the whereabouts of Halyna Dovhopola, as well as verify compliance with rights, because relatives and lawyers still have not been able to find out about her state of health and provide her with legal and medical assistance”,- Denisova’s message emphasized.

We remind that the FSB press service reported that on suspicion of treason in Sevastopol, a Ukrainian citizen was detained, who was recruited by Ukrainian intelligence services and, on the instructions of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, purposefully collected classified military information. The woman was arrested for two months – until January 26, 2020. Later it turned out that the detained citizen of Ukraine is a 64-year-old resident of Sevastopol – Halyna Dovhopola.
