Moskalkova has conferred by telephone with the Ukrainian ombudsman Lyudmila Denisova, who told her about the court ruling. Odnovol will be released from detention soon, Moskalkova’s press service said.
According to the Ukrainian ombudsman, Odnovol has pleaded guilty. However, Denisova said nothing about the essence of charges against the activist, the statement reads.
