Our children are prisoners of war

Viktor Soroka defines his son Vasil as a “genuine patriot”. That's why, he says, he enlisted in the navy. “For him the most important thing is family and Ukraine,” he added. A week ago that the family of Soroka does not know the fate of the marine, nor of the other 24 crew members of the flotilla ukraine, shot down boarded and captured last Sunday by a coast guard russians in the sea of Azov. Just know that it is one of the three wounded. Unaware of where you are and your state of health. “We just have some data that has told the Russian press, which says that one of the men was wounded in the leg,” he says.

Russia has sentenced the marine to two months of pretrial detention by “trespassing” in waters that he considers his own, while Ukraine claims that the flotilla was in international waters. The incident, which Russia considers a provocation and after that closed for a few hours in the Kerch strait by a barrier formed by freighter, and ships of war —a gesture unprecedented since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991— has increased the tension between the two countries.

Ukraine has declared martial law in the 10 regions of the country, the border with Russia and with the area under the influence of Moscow in Moldova, and has restricted entry to Russian male fighting-age (between 16 and 60 years) except for exceptions on “humanitarian”. Moscow claims that, in addition to a long list of weapons in the three vessels Ukrainian, located a navigation list. “It means that the sailors ukrainians were fully aware of the procedures step of the narrow [Kerch],” said the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB).

The event in the sea of Azov —that the two countries should share under a 2003 agreement, but now is played by the annexation by Russia of the Crimean peninsula in 2014— has been placed again the conflict between Casinovale Kiev and Moscow in the board's geopolitical world, with the marine retained as one of its elements. On Thursday, the president of the united States, Donald Trump, aborted through a message on his Twitter account the meeting that was going to keep with the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, in the framework of the G20 summit held these days in Buenos Aires (Argentina), citing precisely the case of the sailors held next to their boats.

“Our children are prisoners of war. That has to be clear. What has happened is an assault pirate of Russia against Ukraine,” says Soroka, 50 years old, former councillor of the district of Odessa and is now a member of the nationalist party Freedom, and to whom the family of the marine held has been designated as a sort of spokesperson. The families, who have not received many details on the part of the Ukrainian authorities, are terrified for their children but are also afraid to speak out publicly. The Russian news agency TASS has reported that the 21 detainees (those that are not wounded) have been transferred to the prison moscow's Lefortovo and interned in what have been called the quarantined cells, each one in a separate one. Apparently, the three injured are admitted in the prison hospital Matrosskaya Tishina, also in Moscow.


For many ukrainians, the 24 sailors have become in a few heroes. The news you realize that one of them, the commander of the Yany Kapu, Oleh Melnichuk, refused to respond in Russian language at the trial held against them in the Crimea, and asked a translator to Ukrainian, have long been celebrated. “This is a official Ukrainian. A true cossack,” he has described it in Facebook the mp Andriy Illenko.

Vasil Soroka, 27 years old, married and with a kid who on Friday met the two, was in the navy from 2015. He studied Law, but changed course after Russia anexionase Crimea, in 2014. “He lived in the Odessa region at that time. “Lived it wrong, so I virtually had no choice to join the military. Who else but he also can defend their country”, says his father, who is convinced that if the international community “do not press”, your children will still be retained. Eugenia, the wife of the father of Andriy Eider, 18 years old, the youngest of the seamen captured, is also terrified by the guy, who, like Vasil, you're hurt. Regrets on the phone that took just four months enlisted in the Berdiansk; the vessel most affected of the three that make up the flotilla, captured by Russia.
