Nadiia Savchenko's lawyer Ilya Novikov wrote on Twitter: "The situation is under control, Vira Savchenko is in a car with diplomatic plates at the checkpoint. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has already been informed. We won't surrender."
"Yesterday, they freely let her in [the territory of Russia - ed.]. Now they say she is on the wanted list for insulting a Chechen judge," Novikov said.
