In the new year Savchenko will turn back home," wrote Mark Feygin, the lawyer of Nadia Savchenko in his Twitter. He did not explain the reasons for such confidence. The users of social networks asked him to unveil some more details, but he suggested to talk less, so as not to frighten luck, and Feygin was quich to add: "We are not superstitious though".
Recalling, Russia's Federal Security Service banned Nadia's sister Vira Savchenko from entering the country until 2020. The lawyer states that Nadiya Savchenko is now deprived of the right to defense since her sister Vira was declared the sole witness for the accused at the trial. Feygin promises that Federal Security Service's decision to ban Vira Savchenko from entering the territory of the Russian Federation will be appealed.
