"The court has recessed for making a decision on prolonging the arrest for six months," he noted.

Feigin said that the lawyers are appealing to Savchenko's status as the PACE delegate who has immunity prohibiting from prolongation of the arrest term.

Besides, the lawyer informed that his client started to receive mail. Savchenko asks that not only Ukrainians, but also Russians write to her.
