„I join the demand of the international community that the Russian Federation release Nadiya Savchenko, the Ukrainian army officer, Member of the Verkhovna Rada and the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, from illegal detention.

In this difficult moment, I express solidarity with the Ukrainian people, the Government of Ukraine, members of parliament and my colleague, Mr. Volodymyr Groysman.

While it is difficult to believe in the fairness of the Russian legal system, I remain hopeful that the unprecedentedly strong position of the international community will have an effect on the hastily planned final verdict.“
