"Nadiia Savchenko must return to Ukraine! The Ministry of Justice of Ukraine has received an appeal from Nadiia, in which she requests to launch the procedure of her return to Ukraine!" he wrote.
"I have repeatedly insisted that Nadiia Savchenko was illegally abducted from the territory of Ukraine and subjected not to a trial but its mockery which Nadiia does not recognize and therefore even banned the lawyers to appeal this shameful verdict. I will do my best under international conventions to return Nadiia home," the minister stressed.
Petrenko also said that tomorrow he will meet with Nadiia's sister - Vira Savchenko.
