Feygin: Savchenko unlikely to return to Ukraine in next few weeks
The lawyer commented on President Poroshenko’s recent statement
Russian lawyer Mark Feygin, member of Nadiya Savchenko’s defense team, expressed doubts that the detained Ukrainian fighter pilot will be able to return to Ukraine in matter of weeks.
“I’d love to share the President’s optimism regarding “weeks that remain to Savchenko’s release”, but I’ve got a feeling it will turn otherwise. Let’s hope my skepticism on this issue will become an impetus for the Kremlin. Tomorrow (on Monday – 112 International) I’ll visit Nadiya and tell her the news, perhaps it’ll make her happy”, he tweeted.
As is known, Nadiya Savchenko stays in pre-trial detention centre in Russia; the Russian court found her guilty of killing two Russian reporters during the Donbas conflict in summer 2014, as well as illegal crossing of the Russian border. Savchenko was sentenced to 22 years in jail. The pilot, her defense team, the Ukrainian government, the Western leaders and the vast majority of Ukrainians insist she’s innocent and demand that Russia release Savchenko.
