Putin has to worry: the British minister has threatened Moscow on Ukraine

The HMS Echo (H87) reconnaissance vessel of the British Royal Navy , which arrived in Ukraine on Wednesday, December 19, should become an alarm signal for Russian President Vladimir Putin and may not be the only ship sent to Ukraine.

This was stated by the British defense minister Gavin Williamson, who visited the Odessa seaport, where the ship was moored, reports Obozrevate .

"What we are talking about is what we say to President Putin... They can not continue to act, ignoring international laws or international norms," ​​he said.

According to him, the presence of HMS Echo testifies to the support of Ukraine by the United Kingdom in confronting Russian aggression. He added that HMS Echo may not become the only ship that its state can throw into the ports of Ukraine.

As reported by the "Apostrophe", NATO made a statement regarding the Kerch crisis and gave Putin the last chance.

UNGA passes new resolution on Russian-occupied Crimea, Ukrainian political prisoners

Ukraine News. Sunday 23 December. [Ukrainian sources] Censor_news_big3

Late on Dec. 22, the United Nations General Assembly backed a resolution condemning human rights violations in Russian-occupied Crimea.

As reported by Censor.NET citing TSN news service via UNIAN, some 65 states voted for the resolution, 27 voted against, and 70 abstained. Among those who supported the resolution are the United States, the European Union countries, Turkey, and Japan. The following countries voted against the document: Russia, Belarus, China, India, Serbia, Syria, South Africa, Nicaragua, and Venezuela.

"The General Assembly calls on all international organizations and specialized agencies of the United Nations to use the phrase 'The Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ukraine, temporarily occupied by the Russian Federation' when it comes to Crimea in their official documents, communications and publications, including statistics of the Russian Federation," the resolution said.

The document also mentioned Ukrainian political prisoners Oleh Sentsov and Volodymyr Balukh, who were illegally detained in Crimea and convicted by the Russian Federation. The UN General Assembly says it is disturbed by the fact since 2014, the Russian authorities have used torture to obtain fake evidence in politically motivated prosecutions, including with the case of Ukrainian director Oleh Sentsov. It also expresses deep concern about the subsequent detentions and arrests of Ukrainian citizens by Russia, including Volodymyr Balukh and Emir-Huseyn Kuku, according to the resolution.

"His sight decreased, he is nearly blind," - lawyer on Kremlin’s Ukrainian prisoner Gryb

Ukraine News. Sunday 23 December. [Ukrainian sources] Censor_news_big3

Ukrainian political prisoner Pavlo Gryb, who is unlawfully held in the Russian prison, is unable to read and cannot even see faces properly.

"His sight has significantly decreased, he is nearly blind. Sometimes he is just unable to read the documents that I give him. It is even hard for him to make out people’s faces," his lawyer Marina Dubrovina said in an interview with Glavcom news outlet, Censor.NET reports.

She said that Pavlo finds it hard to take part in court hearings as he doesn’t see witnesses’ faces properly. According to her, he also cannot remember well what she tells him due to his memory impairment.

"If we compare what his condition was last December, when I started defending him in court, with what we have now, one doesn’t need to be a doctor to understand that the guy’s health has been deteriorating ever since," the lawyer added.

In August 2017, Gryb was abducted from Belarus by the Russian FSB security force and consequently illegally arrested in the Russian Federation. Trumped-up charges have been pressed against the young man under Article 205 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (an act of terrorism).

Russian investigators accused Gryb of allegedly plotting a terrorist attack at a school assembly in Sochi. Pavlo Gryb is diagnosed with portal hypertension, which requires daily intake of necessary medications and a special diet, the lack of which could become fatal. Russian authorities do not allow access of Ukrainian doctors to examine the political prisoner's health.

On July 23, 2018, the court in Rostov-on-Don, Russia, returned the indictment against Gryb to prosecutors after finding that the formal charge against the defendant was based on a clause of the Criminal Code that had not been in place at the time of the alleged crime and extended his arrest until October 22, 2018.

On Oct. 25, Krasnodar Krai's prosecutors sent back the Gryb case to the North Caucasian district military court after correcting what Russian media called a "procedural mistake."

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has once again demanded from Russian authorities to release Ukrainian national Pavlo Gryb who had been abducted by the FSB from the territory of Belarus and then arrested in Russia. "The farce in the Pavlo Gryb case continues. Today, Russia illegally extended his arrest until April 2019. We express our protest to the Russian Federation and demand [Gryb's] release," the ministry's press secretary tweeted on Nov. 7.
