Since last Monday (Jan. 26) Savchenko is a member of our Parliamentary Assembly, where she represents the Verkhovna Rada. And, in accordance with international protocol, she has a European parliamentary immunity, she said.
Brasseur also noted that the PACE resolution requires freeing Savchenko within 24 hours.
The Russian government must do everything to release Savchenko. If they do not - then have to turn to us with a request for the lifting of her immunity, she noted.
Today I will write a letter to Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov on this issue, she told reporters.
