Censor.NET reports quoting a statement by the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry.
It reads: "The verdict is an indisputable proof that it is useless to seek justice in modern Russia. When Russia is politically driven, it disregards the fundamental norms and principles of international law, its national legislation, humanity, justice, and morality.
"This unlawful decision based on the bogus investigation represents not the verdict against Nadiia Savchenko but against Russia itself, where the Kremlin crushed down any fairness and justice.
"Russia's brutal violation of universal norms as well as Nadiia's PACE immunity is a clear signal to the international community on the inadmissibility of violating fundamental principles and norms by the country being one of the UN Security Council permanent members.
"We consider this cynical judicial farce as yet another indisputable evidence of violation of the Minsk agreements by the Russian Federation.
"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine urges Russia to immediately cancel this illegal, inhumane decision and immediately release Nadiia Savchenko. We also require setting free all illegally detained citizens of Ukraine that are political hostages and victims of the Russian aggression against Ukraine.
"We are confident that all those involved into fabricating the case against Nadiia Savchenko will be brought to justice. To this end, Ukraine will continue working with its international partners to make them support the Savchenko List."
