The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) is preparing a separate resolution regarding Ukrainian servicewoman and lawmaker Nadiia Savchenko.

Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction MP, Head of Ukraine's Permanent Mission to PACE Volodymyr Ariev said at a briefing today, Censor.NET reports citing the Petro Poroshenko Bloc press service.

"The Parliamentary Assembly will prepare a separate resolution on Nadiia Savchenko with consequences for the Russian authorities.

"We must do our best to release Savchenko. The European colleagues have supported me and promised to share the petition within the parliaments of their countries, as well as demand that their governments take all necessary steps to liberate Nadiia Savchenko. These steps will be scheduled in the near future," Volodymyr Ariev said.
