Konstantin Dolgov, Russian Foreign Ministry Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law, said that the work on the Savchenko’s case will continue only in the legal framework of Russia.
“These are hopeless attempt, but attempts that are very significant with respect to interference in our internal affairs. The future work will be built only in the legal framework of Russia,” Dolgov said during his speech at the Federation Council, according to UNIAN.
Dolgov also noted that Ukraine, in the context of Savchenko’s trail, puts forward "absurd demands" that "violate the principle of the rule of law."
He also expressed regret that Western countries joined the attempts to release Savchenko.
“Some of them are trying to ignore, in this case, the principle of judicial independence, which they adhere to in respect of their own states, but they deny this to the Russian Federation,” said Dolgov.
On March 2, Russian court sentenced Nadezhda Savchenko to 22 years' imprisonment in a strict regime prison for alleged "murder of Russian journalist" Igor Korneliuk and Anton Voloshin. She was also awarded a penalty in the amount of RUB 30 thousand for "illegal border crossing." On April 6, Nadezhda Savchenko went on dry hunger strike, demanding her return to Ukraine, but after a phone conversation with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on April 19, she stopped it.
