The fake letter to Nadiya Savchenko, allegedly signed by President Poroshenko, was a large-scale special operation designed and perpetrated by Russian special services. It involved a lot of people, Nadiya’s sister Vira Savchenko said in an interview with 112 Ukraine TV channel.
“It was a serious operation; they called me and many people whom I met back when we participated in the Euromaidan protests. The Kremlin found all those people, scrutinized them”, she noted.
She added that the special services resort to all kinds of measures so as to frighten and discredit Ukrainians in Russia. “If Ukrainians assault their embassy, and they attack ours, at least we never touch the consuls in these dirty games; and the Russians do that. But they keep silence so that it looks like an innocent joke. That’s mean, but that’s the nature of the Kremlin”, Vira Savchenko said.
She added she was sure that Nadiya’s lawyer Mark Feygin couldn’t know that the letter was a fake one.
Previously, Feygin published the letter sent to Nadia Savchenko, allegedly by Petro Poroshenko, in which she was asked to stop her hunger strike. Besides, the letter stated that the President would like to see Savchenko in the new Ukrainian government. Later, Feygin apologized to everyone who read the letter at his Facebook page, presuming it was a special operation by the FSB (Russian federal security service). Poroshenko’s press secretary Svyatoslav Tseholko claimed the Head of the Ukrainian state never sent Savchenko any letters, but expressed his support to her family verbally.
