Lawyer Nikolai Polozov uploaded the copy of the letter at his Facebook page. “Russia’s political prisoners of the Ukrainian origin support each other even from behind the bars. I received that letter by Ahtem Chyigoz from his wife; Nadiya already replied”, he wrote.
“Just like you, I’ ve often had a thought to give up my life; because there’s no otehr way to protect oneself from the outrage done by the Russian government, from the humiliation and discrimination against us, perpetrated by the people whose hands are stepped in blood up to the elbows. These people are responsible for thousands of dead civilians in Chechnya, Syria, for civilian aircraft explosions, political persecutions, murders of dissidents, for terror in Crimea and Donbas and a lot of other stuff”.
“They will be punished for all these crimes, no matter how much time elapses”, reads Chyigoz’s letter.
The Crimean Tatar activist asked Savchenko to “save the life of a young woman, who should creaet a family and give birth to beautiful children”.
In her reply, the Ukrainian pilot thanked Chyigoz and wrote: “Ahtem, we’ll make it! What’s most important, our both nations will live in their own land again”.
Ukrainians and the international community continue the wide public campaign to support Savchenko, demanding her release.
