Vera Savchenko: Nadia will be back when will lower oil prices

Вера Савченко: Надя вернется, когда снизят цены на нефть

Vera Savchenko – the prospects for the return of her sister’s Hopes in Ukraine.

One of the lawyers of Nadiya Savchenko, Nikolai Polozov, said that the process of returning the captive home may be delayed for six months. He said this in response to the statement of the head of the Russian Ministry of justice Alexander Konovalov that the Department has received the documents necessary to transfer convicted in Ukraine, says the magazine Reporter in No. 19 of 20 may 2016.

According to Polozov, the process of exchange of documents between Ukraine and Russia is very slow. Although the Ministry of justice of Ukraine has already handed over to the colleagues from Russia a package of documents on the return of Savchenko under the Convention of 1993 on the transfer of sentenced persons. Following this document, Ukraine will have to accept the verdict of the Russian court and to guarantee its execution. There is no other way, because the pilot refused to write to the President of the Russian Federation the petition for clemency.

“The most effective method to Nadi return home – a decline in oil prices and the embargo on its sale, – commented on the situation the pilots sister, Vera Savchenko. – It will be very convincing for Russia. Believe me.

However, to make predictions about when is Nadia going home, I don’t want. As to believe the predictions of politicians. For example, today my mom put on a wedding garment: prepared to meet Nadia. Mom listened to the predictions of politicians, who, unfortunately, scattered words.

I have seen Nadia. Because under Russian law, it is condemned now, Dating with her is put only once a month. Before we could see each other twice as often. In may on a date went to the mother – to Nadia for her birthday.

Fortunately, lawyers and consuls can visit her without restrictions. Yesterday, for example, met with Nadia mark Feigin. He described to her the situation, gave to understand what it is to be hoped, and what not”.
