George Michael Link, Director of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), appealed to Russia to immediately release the Ukrainian pilots and MP Nadiya Savchenko.
- Savchenko’s release would send a strong humanitarian message given her health problems, and would build confidence in the peace process aimed at resolving the two-year-old crisis in and around Ukraine, according to Link’s statement posted on the OSCE website.
Yesterday, the Donetsk City Court in Rostov region of the Russian Federation convicted the Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko of killing two Russian journalists and sentenced to 22 years in prison.
The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said the verdict breaches the Minsk Agreements.
As QHA reported earlier, Petro Poroshenko made an official statement on the sentence pronounced on Ukrainian Nadiya Savchenko who is illegally held by Kremlin.
