 Consuls literally won Vira Savchenko back from Russian border guards; her fate now being decided on high diplomatic level, - lawyer Novikov

Nadiia Savchenko's sister Vira is now in the consulate, her fate being decided on high diplomatic level.

As reported by Censor.NET, this was announced by lawyer Ilya Novikov on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.

"She was told that she is on the federal wanted list due to an assault of a judge. As long as she was in the car with diplomatic license plate, border guards could not detain her. Frankly speaking, consuls literally won her back from border guards," Novikov noted.

The lawyer is certain that the sister of Ukrainian aviatrix, Vira Savchenko will be able to leave Russia "today or in the next few days."
