 Adjourning trial of Savchenko is deliberate and cynical violence, - Foreign Ministry

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine expresses its resolute protest in connection with adjourning the trial of Ukrainian citizen Nadiia Savchenko and intentionally creating circumstances that pose a mortal threat to her life.

Censor.NET reports citing Foreign Ministry's official statement.

It reads: "Adjourning the date of verdict against Nadiia Savchenko until March 21 and denying her right to be visited by Ukrainian consuls, doctors, and family members, who have purposefully arrived in Russia, is viewed as a deliberate and cynical violence against Nadiia Savchenko, whose indomitable will and strength have made her a symbol of resisting Russia's aggression against Ukraine.

"We are deeply concerned by Russia's unprecedented disregard of Nadiia Savchenko's status of a member of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, granting her a corresponding immunity.

"Once again, we call on the international community to continue political and diplomatic pressure on the Russian Federation to protect the life of Nadiia Savchenko and further her immediate release and return to Ukraine."
