UK demands clarity after jailed British-Russian activist vanishes from prison
UK Foreign Secretary David Cameron has demanded Russia to disclose the location of jailed opposition figure Vladimir Kara-Murza.
The Russian-British national, convicted of treason for criticising the Ukraine war, was recently moved from a Siberian prison.
Concerns have risen due to the secretive nature of Russian prison transfers, which can take weeks.
Cameron emphasised the need for urgent information from Russia about Kara-Murza’s whereabouts, as inquiries to the Omsk penal colony where he was held revealed he was no longer there.
