 More than 20 countries spoke in support of Savchenko, - Foreign Ministry

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine says more than 20 countries addressed Russia in their support of Ukrainian MP Nadiia Savchenko on Wednesday.

Foreign Ministry Political Director Oleksii Makeiev said on air of 5 Channel, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrainski Novyny.

"Over the day, more than 20 foreign ministries and ministers personally have expressed support (of Savchenko in their calls on Russia)... All over the world, official authorities have reacted," he said.

Earlier, Latvia, Estonia, and Poland urged Russia to release Savchenko.

As Censor.NET previously reported, Ukraine's Foreign Ministry views 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 is viewed as a violence.
