US Department of State supervises cases of all political prisoners in Russia. However, Savchenko’s case deserves maximum attention, said Nadiya Savchenko’s lawyer Ilya Novikov in an interview to “112 Ukraine” TV channel.

“The USA are concerned, they keep an eyes on Savchenko’s case and on the state of affairs with other captives recognized as political prisoners by the Foreign Ministry. Overall there are 28 political prisoners, but Savchenko’s case is a separate issue, because she was abducted right from the territory of Ukraine”, - Novikov said.

“High level officials at the US State Department  informed me that they consider Savchenko’s case unique and they will not acknowledge the implementation of Minsk agreements by the Russia Federation, unless Savchenko is released”,  - Novikov added.
