The banner urging Russia to immediately release Hero of Ukraine Nadiya Savchenko will be hanging on the Embassy’s building, located in one of the most crowded places in Washington. The Embassy’s press service in the USA reported this on Tuesday.
“Ambassador Valeriy Chaly positively assessed the unity of U.S. political forces regarding Ukrainian political prisoners and hostages that are being illegally held in Russia. He noted that Nadiya united her compatriots all around the world, so that the issue of her release has got far beyond any political statements. She became a symbol of Ukraine’s struggle for freedom”, the Embassy’s press service said.
As 112 International reported, MP and officer of Ukraine's Air Force Nadiya Savchenko is sentenced to 22 years of Russian prison. The respective verdict was prononuced on March 22. Savchenko already said that she'd resume waterless hunger strike on April 6, when the court's decision comes into force. Nadiya's lawyers urge activists to join protest actions against her illegal detention in Russia.
