Dopis Vladmíru Putinovi
To: Mr Vladimir Putin
President of the Russian Federation
We, members of the European Parliament, address you in order to express our strong protest
concerning the "trial" of Nadiya Savchenko, a Ukrainian citizen, military pilot and member of the
Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and the Ukrainian delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the
Council of Europe.
We want to convey to you that we will never recognise the verdict against Nadiya Savchenko, which
we regard as illegal and fabricated.
We strongly criticise this politically-orchestrated shameful decision of the Russian court and we call
on the Russian Federation to stop violating the international humanitarian law and, in particular,
the Third Geneva Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War of 12 August 1949.
We also wish to remind you that under the Minsk Agreements the Russian Federation has agreed to
the exchange of all hostages and illegally detained people on the basis of the all-to-all principle and
call for its full implementation.
We remain very much concerned about an extremely fragile state of health of Nadiya Savchenko,
particularly when she has decided to renew a dry hunger strike, and demand her immediate
We emphasize our determination to continue raising public attention to the case and draw your
attention to the strong interest that a larger public has taken in the case of Nadiya Savchenko in the
EU and beyond as well as the degree to which the unfair and illegal process against her has harmed
the image of the Russian government abroad.
We point out that this is you who will be personally and directly responsible for not preventing a
tragic outcome before it becomes too late.
We urge you to show due respect to your own commitments and obligations and immediately and
unconditionally release Nadiya Savchenko, as well as Oleg Sentsov, Olexandr Kolchenko and other
citizens of Ukraine illegally prisoned in Russia.
Finally, we underline that the release of these citizens of Ukraine is one of the necessary steps
towards possible normalisation of the relations between the European Union and the Russian
