The Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has released a video of former political prisoners, freed from Russia’s grasp, calling on the international community to pressure Russia into releasing the estimated one hundred Ukrainians still held by Russia. Notable political prisoners, such as Roman Sushchenko, Artur Panov, Mykola Karpiuk, Pavlo Hrib, and others, make an appearance.

The video, posted on Facebook and entitled #LetMyPeopleGO, hopes to spread awareness of the illegal detention of Ukrainians in Russian territory and its puppet states in the occupied territories.
