More than 200 artists and public figures wrote an open letter to European leaders to take emergency measures for the release of illegally detained in Russia Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko. The citizens of Poland were initiators of this appeal.
Earlier Vira Savchenko said that Most reasonable option for Russia is an acquittal to Nadiya
"The Russian government violates human rights, international law and the Constitution of the Russian Federation, mocks the international community and violates the Minsk agreement on the settlement of Donbas situation. Previous effort of the international community was in vain. Protesting against the actions of the Russian justice, Nadiya Savchenko announced a hunger strike. Nadiya’s salvation is a test of international diplomacy effectiveness and our commitment to the European values, "- said in the petition.
The appeal was signed by more than 200 well-known intellectuals, journalists, artists, translators, community leaders, directors, priests from Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, Georgia, Lithuania, the USA, Germany, Russia, France, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Croatia and other countries.
