The 4 men were detained by the Russian authorities for expressing opposition to the illegal annexation of Crimea, and given lengthy jail sentences following trials which appeared to fall well short of international standards. These cases, including over 70 others against Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars, underline the Russian Federation’s systematic persecution of those who voice their opposition to Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea.A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesperson said: For journalists Email [email protected] We are deeply concerned about the welfare of the four Ukrainian nationals held by Russia, who are on hunger strike in protest against Russia’s continued detention of Ukrainian political prisoners. Their imprisonment, and that of many more Ukrainians who have been jailed by Russia, appears politically motivated. We call on the Russian authorities to release them immediately. Russia’s control over Crimea remains illegal and illegitimate, and is a flagrant violation of a number of Russia’s international commitments.

MORE: Tiger Woods results from Round 3 of the U.S. OpenDespite not being one of those familiar names, Woodland was ranked 25th in the world coming into the third major of the season A former University of Kansas golfer, Woodland turned professional in 2007 and joined the PGA Tour in 2009. In 10 years on the Tour, Woodland has won three events, most recently at the 2018 Waste Management Phoenix Open in a playoff over Chez Reavie, who is also in contention this weekend.Entering his Saturday tee time, Woodland hadn’t bogeyed in 27 consecutive holes. Although not new on the Tour, excelling at major tournaments is a recent development for the Delray Beach, Fla., resident.Woodland recorded his first top-10 finish in a major last year at the PGA Championship after entering Round 3 with the solo lead. He was paired with Tiger Woods in the final round before fading to a tie for sixth place. At this year’s PGA Championship at Bethpage Black, Woodland finished tied for eighth. Before his 2018 PGA Championship performance, Woodland had gone 27 majors in a row without a top-10. In one of golf’s biggest tournaments of the year, at one of the most iconic courses in the world, and with every top golfer present, it would be natural to expect a leaderboard packed with familiar names.While this year’s U.S. Open does have a few of those golfers — Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka among them — at the top, no one was playing better entering Saturday than Gary Woodland, who held a two-stroke lead over the rest of the field at Pebble Beach. At this year’s Waste Management Open, a video of Woodland inviting Amy Bockerstette from Special Olympics Arizona to play the 16th hole went viral.Known as one of the longest hitters on the PGA Tour, Woodland averages 309.0 yards off the tee, good for 11th on the tour. He’s ranked 26th in the FedEx Cup standings and has three top-10 finishes this season. He has earned $3,108,907 in official winnings.
