She gave an approximate date for the case hearing, — March 20 — and I said that I would like to attend the trial. In any case, this is very important information, because Vyshinsky has been kept in custody for a long time just for performing professional activities. The second question discussed concerns the fate pf with servicemen Alexander Baranov and Maxim Odintsov, and I am glad to learn that Odintsov’s mother can visit him in Kiev, I have repeatedly asked for this, today I will inform her. At my request, the staff of the Ukrainian Commissioner visited Baranov and reported that he had no complaints, but here our information diverges — the conditions of detention in the prison settlement are complex, there was a request to transfer him to another one", -Tatiana Moskalkova said.
In turn, Lyudmila Denisova asked about fates of Edem Bekirov, Vladimir Dudka and Pavel Grib in terms of providing them with medical care. According to Tatiana Moskalkova, the court examination of the case of Pavel Grib is going on in
