суд савченко

The contacts of PACE representatives with Savchenko became impossible after Russia's decision to cut off ties with the Assembly.

Russian delegation to PACE head Aleksei Pushkov said, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.

Head of the Russian delegation to PACE Aleksei Pushkov said that the proposal to the PACE delegation to visit Nadia Savchenko in Moscow prison is no longer relevant.

"PACE's decision to strip the Russian delegation of voting rights and suspend its participation in the governing bodies of the Assembly withdraws the Russian Federation's proposal to the members of the PACE to visit Ukrainian pilot Nadia Savchenko, accused of accessory to murder and held in detention in Russia," he told the reporters in Strasbourg.

According to him, it became impossible after Russia's decision to cut off ties with the PACE. "Any official visits of the PACE delegations, the PACE monitoring mission activities or contacts of the PACE representatives with Ms. Savchenko are absolutely out of question, for the Russian Federation suspends all contacts with the PACE," Pushkov said.
