The Ukrainian MPs have called on the European Parliament to support the introduction of sanctions in the European Union against the persons involved in kidnapping and illegal conviction of Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko, and a range of other Ukrainian citizens.

First Deputy Chairman of the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada Iryna Heraschenko said this following the third sitting of the EU-Ukraine Parliamentary Association Committee in Brussels, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"We have called on our European partners to support ‘Savchenko's list’. In fact, it is very important that today Ukraine can feel the support of the whole civilized world in our aspirations to free Nadiya Savchenko from the Russian prison, as well as 11 other political prisoners, who are in jails of the Russian Federation ,” Heraschenko said.

In addition, according to her, the Russia-backed militants still hold 115 Ukrainian citizens in captivity in the occupied territories.
