Missing Ukrainian citizen found unharmed in Rostov Region

11 November 2016

A missing Ukrainian citizen has been found unharmed in Rostov Region after interference of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Russia.

In June 2016, Ukrainian citizen K.’s mother petitioned the High Commissioner about inaction of the law enforcement agencies of Rostov Region in connection with disappearance of her son. On 15 April 2016, K. crossed Russian border through a checkpoint in Rostov Region, and stopped communication with relatives on 24 April. Only on 20 May, after numerous petitions of K.’s mother, the Rostov Region law enforcement agencies opened a relevant case. However, a month of search did not bring any results, and the woman appealed the High Commissioner with a request to assist in in ascertaining the location of her son.

Having considered the matter, the High Commissioner petitioned the Prosecutor’s Office of Rostov Region. The Shakhty City Section of the Rostov Region Investigation Department of the Investigative Committee of Russia held an inspection following the disappearance of K. As a result, the location of K. was ascertained on 21 October. He reported that no illegal actions had been taken against him, and that he had not contacted anybody since he had lost his mobile phone.

Thus, the missing Ukrainian citizen was found unharmed only after the interference of the High Commissioner.
