The General Committee of PA OSCE on democracy, human rights and humanitarian issues adopted a resolution on "Abducted Ukrainian citizens illegally held in the Russian Federation" during the meeting in Helsinki on July 7. 

The resolution highlights that OSCE strongly condemn the kidnapping of Ukrainian citizens on the territory of Ukraine, including a member of parliament Nadia Savchenko, filmmaker Oleg Sentsov and others, their illegal movement across the Ukrainian-Russian state border and continued detention in the Russian Federation.

OSCE expressed "regret that Nadia Savchenko is kept in prison, and Russia continues to ignore its legal obligations under the General Agreement on Privileges and Immunities of the Council of Europe" (Nadia Savchenko is year a member of the delegation of Ukraine PACE since January 2015).

Ukrainian activists held a protest against Russian aggression against Ukraine and demanded release of Nadia Savchenko. The protest took place on Tuesday at the hall "Finland" in Helsinki during the PA OSCE session.

Meanwhile, Russia's Investigative Committee strengthened the charges against Savchenko. Now she is accused of the murder of two Russian journalists in Donbas. OSCE consider such statements of the Investigative Committee to be ridiculous. Ukrainian parliamentarians recalled that the first video of Savchenko captured by the pro-Russian militants appeared on the Internet before it became widely known that she is in Russia.

Continuing the theme, nine thousand soldiers of regular armed forces of Russia are located on the occupied territory of Donbass, said General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Vladyslav Selezniov.
