She noted that she has written the appeal to the investigator to meet with Nadia but still received no answer. At the same time, lawyers of the Ukrainian pilot grant Vira no consent to date with her sister. "Lawyers do not give the nod to visit her striving not to complicate Nadia's situation.

She told me that a few months ago she was already at the airport on the way to Moscow. "I was turned back by the consul, the Border Guard Service officers and lawyers asking not to depart," she said. Vira says that she will not take such steps without the permission of lawyers. Nadia also advises her sister not to come.
