Ukraine expects 49-year-old fisherman Oleksandr Fedorovych, who survived the accident in the Sea of Azov, to be released by Russian investigative authorities to the homeland by the end of the week, as there is no evidence that he was involved in poaching. The corresponding note was sent to the Foreign Ministry, consul general of Ukraine in Rostov-on-Don Vitali Moskalenko told journalists.

Moskalenko noted that the main argument of the Ukrainian party is that the Ukrainian fishermen were in the Sea of Azov, which, according to the bilateral agreement, is an area of common use for Russia and Ukraine.

However, he added that Fedorovych has been accused of poaching, but there were no fish in a launch.

"Thus, there are no evidences of his being a poacher. He should be allowed to go home," consul general said.

"I think that by the end of this week (so we were told by the investigator) the case will be either sent to the prosecutor's office or a decision will be made on his return home," Moskalenko added.

According to the consul general, now Ukrainian fisherman is under house arrest, and lives with his family in a rented apartment.

He noted that the Ukrainian Consulate General in Rostov-on-Don is in a constant contact with a lawyer and an investigator in the case.
