- They just stamp these pseudo-sentences, and even prison terms do not change, said President Poroshenko commenting on a verdict rendered by the Russian Federation to Ukrainians Nikolai Karpyuk and Stanislav Klyh.
During the meeting with Savchenko’s lawyers Mark Feigin and Nikolai Polozov, the Guarantor of the Constitution promised to do everything to release Ukrainian political prisoners. The third lawyer, Ilya Novikov, was not present at a meeting: today he is in Chechnya where he protects Nicholai Karpyuk. The President thanked the lawyers for their tremendous work and the struggle to release Nadiya Savchenko and other Ukrainian political prisoners in Russia. After all, Mark Feigin also protects Mustafa Dzhemilev, while Nikolai Polozov - Ahtem Chiygoz.
- We see that so far the situation is getting more complicated in Crimea. This applies mainly to the Crimean Tatars. They are Ukrainian citizens, and we see that Russia chooses new victims, new prisoners being guided by ethnicity. Following that not only the criminal cases are launched, but people disappear as well, said Polozov.
The colleague Mark Feigin shared Polozov’s opinion.
- For us, as the Russians it is a great shame that in the XXI century the country that has gone through so many hardships has political prisoners. This shame is not washed off, said Feigin.
