PACE President urges release Savchenko immediately

President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) Anne Brasseur, who on January 15 arrived in Ukraine on official two-day visit, called for the immediate release from captivity of Ukrainian pilot and member of the Assembly Nadiya Savchenko and other prisoners of war.

The PACE press office said this to an Ukrinform correspondent.

"I call for the immediate release of all (POWs), and among these people I also mention pilot Nadiya Savchenko, who now is being imprisoned by the Russian authorities. Ms. Savchenko is now assigned to the Ukrainian delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly. Moreover, there are many reasons for her release, including humanitarian one, as her health condition continues deteriorating as a result of her hunger strike," she said.

Anne Brasseur added that she intends to discuss this issue with the Russian authorities.
