“Moscow should get a clear signal: release of Savchenko or new sanctions”, McCain’s Twitter reads. On Thursday, the official delivered a speech at the Senate.

According to him, the entire democratic world should realize that Russia is a third world country with totalitarian regime, led by a tyrant, the country that doesn’t care about the international norms of law.

“The USA and the entire international community have to react to this outraging violation (Savchenko’s detention) so as to demonstrate firmness of the values that Nadiya embodies”, said the Chairman of Senate Armed Services Committee.

He urged the world to show Putin he can’t stop the dash for freedom and democracy. “The Ukrainian nation deserves this as much as the Russian one does”, he added.

Previously, U.S. President Barack Obama and G7 ambassadors in Ukraine urged Russia to release Nadiya Savchenko.

Recently, Russian Foreign Ministry said the issue of handling Savchenko to Ukraine may be discussed only after the court’s verdict in her case, which is expected to be pronounced on March 21st and 22nd
