The People’s Deputy of Ukraine from the European Solidarity faction Mykola Knyazhitsky called on law enforcement agencies to actively contribute to the release of veteran Igor Mazur, who was detained in Poland on the recommendation of Russia, the press service of the political force said.
“I ask the Prosecutor General Ryaboshapka and the Minister of Internal Affairs Arsen Avakov to actively contribute to the release of the Ukrainian veteran Igor Mazur (Topol). We often try to use Interpol for political purposes. And we will work to resolve the issue with the Polish parliamentarians,” wrote Knyazhitsky on his Facebook page. .
He noted that this is not the first such detention of Ukrainian citizens. «Only in Poland in recent years there have been about 10 such detentions. In some cases, veterans of the Russian-Ukrainian war were detained,» the MP said.
According to him, the Poles cannot act otherwise by law. So far, there have been no facts of extradition to Russia. But the detainees are in custody from three months to two years until the matter is clarified.
Knyazhitsky also noted that Russia should transfer to Poland materials on the basis of which there was a request to Interpol for their study by Polish services and the court.
He stressed that the matter could be decided if the Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office and the Ukrainian Interpol, which is under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, actively join.
