Russian Minister of Justice Alexander Konovalov announced about the possibility of transfer of Ukrainian MP and pilot Nadia Savchenko to Ukraine after verdict, TASS.

“We have already discussed this issue, but it should be divided into two parts. From the perspective of law - yes, we can [transfer Savchenko to Ukraine] if this decision is placed in bilateral agreements and conventional formats," said Konovalov while being in Yalta.

Russia signed the agreements on the transfer of convicts with many countries. "There is a universal principle of consent of three parties: the transmitting country, the host country and the side of the convicted person," noted the Russian official. According to him, the issue of transfer Savchenko to Ukrainian side can be discussed after the sentence is imposed. "But I do not speak in terms of evidence. I do not know whether she is condemned or not, and whether she is transferred," highlighted Konovalov.

Consideration on the merits of Nadia Savchenko in Rostov region began September 22. She is accused of killing of two Russian journalists in Donbas and crossing of Russian-Ukrainian border voluntarily.
