KIEV (QHA) -

At a meeting with Maria Savchenko, Nadezhda Savchenko’s mother, US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt said that Savchenko’s trial has been farcical and outrageous.

“Nadiya’s trial has been farcical and outrageous.  She should be released,”  Payatt wrote on his Twitter page.

It was reported earlier that Nadezhda Savchenko, a Ukrainian air force pilot illegally imprisoned in Russia, has gone on a waterless hunger strike after being denied the right to make a final speech by a judge of the Donetsk court on March 3.
