Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine on the shameful Russian “court decision” on trumped-up case of Nadiya Savchenko

22 March 2016, 16:08

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine expresses strong and resolute protest with regards to so called “verdict” of the so called “Russian court” sentencing Ms. Nadiya Savchenko, citizen of Ukraine, member of Ukrainian Parliament and member of PACE to 22 years in prison.

The verdict is an indisputable proof that it is useless to seek justice in modern Russia. When Russia is politically driven, it disregards the fundamental norms and principles of international law, its national legislation, humanity, justice and morality.

This unlawful decision, based on the bogus investigation represents not the verdict to Nadiya Savchenko but to Russia itself, in which the Kremlin crushed down any fairness and justice.

Russia’s brutal violation of universal norms as well as Nadiya’s PACE immunity is a clear signal to the international community on the inadmissibility of violating fundamental principles and norms by the country which is one of the UN Security Council permanent members.

We consider this cynical judicial farce as yet another indisputable evidence of violation of the Minsk agreements by Russian Federation.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine urges Russia to immediately cancel this illegal, inhumane decision and immediately release Nadiya Savchenko. We also require setting free all illegally detained citizens of Ukraine that are political hostages and victims of the Russian aggression against Ukraine.

We call upon all international community to condemn publicly this crime and intensify the efforts towards forcing the Russian Federation to stop its aggression against the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine as well as our citizens.

We are confident that all those involved into fabricating the case against Nadiya Savchenko will be brought to justice. To this end, Ukraine will continue working with its international partners to bring into force the “Savchenko list”.
