Prosecutor requested 23 years of prison for Nadiya Savchenko by way of partial aggregation of the sentence, informed Nikolai Polozov, Savchenko’s lawyer, on Twitter.
“Prosecutor Filipchuk requested 23 years of prison for Savchenko by way of partial aggregation”, - the lawyer wrote.
Polozov pointed out that Savchenko may be released only due to political negotiation. “In a court like this prosecutors could have requested 100 years, but obviously they are too modest. Procedural efforts will not help release Savchenko. This can be done only by way of political negotiation”, – he pointed out.
Today Donetsk city court of Rostovskiy region in Russia entered a final phase of proceedings in Savchenko’s case. Nadiay Savchenko is accused of illegally crossing Russian border and perpetrating the murder of Russian journalists. Savchenko’s defense claims that she is innocent.
