MOSCOW, (PIC)– The Russian Youth Movement for Palestine called on the UN to press on occupation to fulfill prisoners’ demands that they had declared since the start of the strike three weeks ago.

The movement leadership handed, on Wednesday, a protest letter on the prisoners’ conditions to the head of United Nations Office for Human Rights in Russia, Richard Komenda, after organizing a mass demonstration in support of Palestinian prisoners.

The Russian activists stressed in their letter their total support for the legitimate demands of Palestinian prisoners in occupation prisons, pointing to the inhumane prisoners’ conditions in occupation prisons in violation of international law.

The occupation is committing crimes against the Palestinian prisoners in total ignorance to the UN resolutions and international law, the activists said in the letter, calling on UN to press on Israel to stop its crimes against the prisoners and to improve their conditions in prisons.

It is noted that the Russian Youth Movement for Palestine has recently organized various activities in the Russian capital city in support of the Palestinian case where they had organized a sit-in in front of the Zionist embassy in mid-April and another one in support of prisoners late last month, insisting to organize more solidarity activities in the coming days.
