 Chances for Savchenko's release before June 50-50, lawyer Feygin says

Lawyer of Ukrainian pilot Nadiia Savchenko Mark Feygin said that the chances for her release prior to June are 50-50.

He said this in a comment to UNIAN in Brussels today after his speech at the European Parliament during the meeting of the European delegation at the EU-Ukraine Association Committee, Censor.NET reports.

"Will Savchenko be released or not? She will be released one hundred percent. The question is when and on what conditions. This may take place by June taking into account negotiations and other proceedings, and the chances are 50-50," the lawyer said.

Speaking on the conditions of Savchenko's release, the lawyer is convinced that "they would definitely involve Yerofeyev and Aleksandrov, perhaps something else - either sanctions, or something else so that the international community would be also engaged in this.

"The issue of sanctions extension will also be discussed in June. That is what Putin is interested in much more than in Yerofeyev and Aleksandrov. If he releases Savchenko right before the debate, many will recognize it as a positive move in order to discuss the sectoral sanctions later in a context positive for the Kremlin," he suggested.

Asked about Savchenko's health until June, Feygin said, "If firm guarantees that she would be definitely be released before June were voiced by those she trusted including the consul, sister or lawyers, she would have stopped the hunger strike."
