A delegation of Russia’s high-ranking diplomats and representatives of the judicial system has in an unprecedented move visited the Guantanamo Bay prison, as Moscow has stepped up efforts to secure release of the only Russian national there.
The Russian VIP visitors were toured around the facility, where they spent several hours Friday, speaking to senior representatives of the Department of Defense and the commanders of the detention center. The central part of their visit was an hour-long conversation with the Russian national, Ravil Mingazov, who has been detained for over a decade at Guantanamo without charge.
Russian Foreign Ministry’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Konstantin Dolgov, said the delegation’s basic aim was to ensure Mingazov’s “speediest possible release.”
