Recognition of verdict on Savchenko to deprive her from appealing to ECHR
Justice Ministry is ready to consider Savchenko’s transfer to Ukraine only after decision of the court
If Ukraine recognizes the verdict of Russian court, Nadiya Savchenko may be deprived of possibility to appeal to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), stated Mark Feigin, lawyer of Savchenko.
"For the sake of clarity. If Ukraine recognizes the verdict of Russian court, Savchenko may be deprived of possibility to appeal it to the ECHR", he wrote in his Twitter.
Earlier today, the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation stated that the question of possibility of transferring Savchenko to Ukraine can be discussed only after the court’s verdict with the mandatory condition of recognition of it and guarantees to continue her punishing at the homeland.
Commenting on this announcement, Feigin said that it indicates that Savchenko’s legal defence has fully proven her faultlessness.

Russian prosecution claims that Savchenko led adjustment of fire during the bombardment by the Ukrainian military. Also, pilot is accused of illegally crossing the Russian border.
