Russia has also right to request an additional month to respond.
"The question is when? It is the most urgent, and apparently the one with no answer. Under the Convention, the requested state has to respond within one month, plus it may additionally request another month. However, taking into account the political decisions, these terms can definitely be cut. The only question is whether the Kremlin is willing to fulfill part of its obligations," Polozov said.
He also added that there was still no progress in the admission of both Ukrainian and German doctors to Savchenko.
