During the hearing into the Savchenko’s case, her lawyer Nikolay Polozov said that abduction and transfer of the pilot to the Russian territory by Russian special services, as well as the charges against her are absurd and shameful.
“This case is absolute madness. The abduction of Nadezhda Savchenko from the territory of Ukraine and accusation against her of illegal border crossing is a shameful page in the history of our country,” he said.
During his speech he also told that among those who transported Nadezhda Savchenko was Pavel Karpov, ex-employee of the Presidential Administration of Russia and subordinate of Vladislav Surkov.
As QHA reported earlier, Nadezhda Savchenko opposed the idea of her exchange for prisoners, agents of Russian Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU).
