Nadiya Savchenko, a Ukrainian pilot convicted in Russia, can be transferred from Rostov region to one of the colonies in the Republic of Mordovia, reported Vladimir Markin, Chairman of the Russia’s Investigative Committee as cited by Interfax.
- As long as the exchange does not happen, I think if this girl is sent to one of the Mordovian colonies, she will be one of the active participants of artistic activities, said Markin.
As is known, Mariya Tolokonnikova, a Russian activist and member of Pussy Riot, also served her sentence at Mordovian penal colony as convicted of "vandalism at Christ the Savior Cathedral."
The Russia’s Court in Donetsk has fined and sentenced the Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko to 22 years in prison.
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said he is ready to exchange Savchenko for Russian special operations members Aleksandrov and Yerofeyev, who were seized in Eastern Ukraine.
Nadiya Savchenko forbade her lawyers to file an appeal and a petition for pardon.
The General Prosecutor’s Office in Ukraine has launched criminal proceedings against Russian judges for sentencing Savchenko.
