Poroshenko thanks Erdogan for helping to release Tatars leaders

Pres Poroshenko thanked Turkish Pres Erdogan for his role in the release from the Russian jail of two Chechen Tatars leaders, Ahtem Chijgoz and Ilmi Umerov illegally convicted by the Russian court, Poroshenko writes in Facebook Oct. 25.

The Russian court charged the leaders with terrorist activities.
