 Ukrainian doctors may get permission to visit Savchenko

The team of Ukrainian doctors, who were trying to visit and examine Nadiia Savchenko in jail, were on their way to Kyiv from Rostov, but returned. They are currently in Kamensk-Shakhtinsk waiting for permission to visit the Ukrainian pilot.

Savchenko's sister Vira told Censor.NET correspondent.

"The doctors left for Ukraine today. However our ministers told them to return when they were already at the border. The new hope has evolved that they will manage to get inside the remand prison," Vira Savchenko said. Nadiia's sister confirmed that she called Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Ella Pamfilova and her assistants. "Pamfilova said that the doctors should be issued visit permits," Vira Savchenko said.

It should be reminded that the Ukrainian servicewoman and MP Nadiia Savchenko said that only Ukrainian or Western doctors would be allowed to examine her and she would fend away the Russian ones. Kyiv has sent a team of three doctors. They were waiting for permission to visit Savchenko in Rostov. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the doctors would not get visit permits as Nadiia Savchenko demonstrated a defiant attitude to the court.
