I welcome the decision of the UN maritime tribunal that Russia must free our sailors

With much gratitude and hope I welcome the historic ruling of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea requiring the IMMEDIATE RELEASE of the Ukrainian sailors from Russian captivity.

This is a sign that the world has not forgotten us and our troubles, that there is international law and common sense in the modern world. The decision is an act of support of Ukraine and strong moral support for our sailors and all those fighting for their freedom.

Like everyone else, I look forward to seeing our heroes return home from captivity
