The Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s Parliament, has called on the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) to do everything possible so that Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko can return to Ukraine as soon as possible, Verkhovna Rada Chairman Andriy Parubiy has said.

“Today, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe begins its work in Strasbourg. The first issue will be about Nadiya Savchenko, a heroic Ukrainian woman, who was kidnapped by Russian terrorists during fighting in the town of Schastia. Nadiya Savchenko is our colleague, who has become a symbol of the statehood of Ukraine ... Her current state of health is critical, we understand that President Putin is responsible for this.

We understand that it is extremely complicated to hold negotiations with him, but we are calling on the

Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe to do everything possible so that Nadiya Savchenko can return home as soon as possible and be with us,” Parubiy said.

A reminder that the PACE Spring plenary session opens in Strasburg on April 18. Debates on Nadiya Savchenko

are planned to be considered on the first day of the session.
