According to Svyatoslav Tsegolko, no reason was given for not allowing the Ukrainian delegation into the court room.

"Just now the Ukrainian delegation was not allowed to return to the court room without any explanation: neither I, nor MPs, nor the consuls," Tsegolko wrote on his Facebook page.

The Ukrainian delegation arrived in Rostov to give their support to illegally imprisoned Ukrainian air force pilot Nadezhda Savchenko who is awaiting sentence.

It was reported earlier that Nadezhda Savchenko intends to continue with her hunger strike regardless of the sentence.
