One of the support groups of Nadiya Savchenko was banned from entering Russia. The activists wanted to support a Ukrainian political prisoner when she will be pronounced a sentence, reported Savchenko’s lawyer Nikolay Polozov on Twitter.

- At least one of the groups, coming to support Nadiya Savchenko when pronounced a sentence, has been denied entry to Russia. The activists had been held for a day and then turned away. The FSB, denying entry to the people willing to support Nadia Savchenko, say that even their short stay in the Russian Federation is undesirable. The airport of Rostov-on-Don is closed until tomorrow. It is better to go either by train or car or even through Krasnodar in order to be present at the hearing of Nadiya Savchenko, wrote Polozov.

Tomorrow, March 21, the Russian Court shall impose a sentence in the case of Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko.
