"The president has also instructed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to set up a coordinating office for Nadiia's release. These days, he has repeatedly spoken to Nadiia's mother Maria - both in person and on phone. Every effort is made for Maria to wait until her daughter is back home. Yesterday, our consul general was granted access to Nadiia. The EU also came up with a rigid statement, calling to release Nadiia Savchenko and all hostages, as stipulated by the Minsk agreements. An international campaign in support of Savchenko and all political prisoners in the Russian Federation is to be launched on March 9 - our diplomatic missions and Ukrainian communities around the world are working to arrange peaceful protests. The rally will take place in various European capitals and cities around the world. On behalf of the Verkhovna Rada committees on European Integration and foreign affairs, we have also sent a statement to our European colleagues and politicians to intensify public pressure on the Russian Federation," the MP added.
