Nordic, Baltic FMs call on Russia to release 'political prisoners'

World Bulletin / News Desk

Nordic and Baltic foreign ministers, meeting in Copenhagen on Thursday, called on Russia to immediately release political prisoners.

They urged to release Estonian policeman who they say was "abducted" from his country and jailed for 15 years in a case that violated international law.

They also said two Ukrainian filmmakers, jailed by a Russian court for "terrorist attacks" in Russian-annexed Crimea, should be released immediately.

They also called for a fair and legal trial for Nadezhda Savchenko, a Ukrainian pilot detained in Russia and accused of murder.
