Moscow keeps contact with the Ukrainian government concerning the fate of Ukrainian fighter pilot Nadiya Savchenko. Russian President Vladimir Putin said this while answering questions of reporters on April 14.
“Our partners know our position. Let’s not run before we can walk”, he said.
As is known, officer of Ukraine's Air Force Nadiya Savchenko was captured in Donbas in July 2014. Pro-Kremlin militants forcefully brought her to Russia, where she was charged with murder of two Russian TV reporters and illegal crossing of the Russian border. She was sentenced to 22 years of prison by Russian court.
The sentence issued to Savchenko came into force on April 5. Protesting against the injustice, she started another waterless hunger strike, which damaged her already weak health. According to her defense team, on April 14, Russian doctors examined her in pre-trial detention centre.
