USA demands to release Savchenko immediately and unconditionally


The US State Department calls for the immediate and unconditional release of a Ukrainian political prisoner, military pilot Nadiya Savchenko. This was stated by the speaker of the Department John Kirby, reports Ukrinform.

“Our position has not changed: she must be released immediately. We have been insisting on this for a long time. She was imprisoned wrongly, and we want to see her freed immediately and unconditionally,” – Said Kirby.

The State Department knows that Savchenko announced a hunger strike, and therefore they emphasize that now the need to release the Ukrainian woman has increased.

Today, on March 3, Donetsk city court of the Rostov region of the Russian Federation postponed hearing of Savchenko’s case till March 9. The court has prematurely closed the meeting, and Savchenko announced a hunger strike

Nadiya Savchenko is forcibly held in Russia after the kidnapping in June of 2014 in Luhansk region. She is accused of involvement in the murder of two journalists of VGTRK, who died in June 2014 during the Russian aggression in the Donbas.

Savchenko categorically rejects all accusations. She is an elected deputy from the Batkivschina Party (“Fatherland” – RRT) of the Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian Parliament – RRT).
