Zakharova: Russia accepts no claims regarding Savchenko’s case

The country is no party of Minsk agreements, says Spokeswoman of the Russian Foreign Ministry

Russia doesn’t accept any claim concerning the case of Ukrainian fighter pilot Nadiya Savchenko, since the Kremlin is not one of the parties that signed Minsk agreements. The Spokeswoman of the Russian Foreign Ministry said this at a briefing on March 27.

“The Minsk agreements just concern the two conflicting sides”, Zakharova said. “We should influence over the conflicting sides just like France or Germany should have impact on Kyiv. That’s it; and we do not owe anything to anyone”, the Russian spokeswoman concluded.

The issue of release of Nadiya Savchenko was discussed earlier this week at the negotiations of Minsk Trilateral Contact Group. One of provisions of the document foresees that hostages and illegally detained persons must be released. The Ukrainian side insists that fighter pilot and MP Nadiya Savchenko must be released, which is in line with Minsk agreements.
