On June 24 in the US Congress, there will be an open hearing on the case of Nadiya Savchenko, Ukrainian pilot and [People’s] Deputy [of Ukraine, i.e.: Member of Parliament] from the “Batkivshchyna” Party.

Nadiya Savchenko’s signature on a letter the first time she became aware of the #FreeSavchenko twitter campaign. In Ukrainian it says “Your Nadiya.”

Hryhoriy Nemyria, Nadiya’s [parliamentary] faction colleague stated at a press conference, reported by Ukrainian News.

“On June 24, the US Congress will hold open hearings on Nadiya Savchenko,” – he said.

Nemyria also stated that Savchenko will be awarded a “For Freedom” award on June 12, by decision of the Atlantic Council of the United States in the Polish [city of] Wrocław.

In addition, Nemyria noted that Savchenko had reviewed 27 of the 38 volumes of her case. He expressed hope that the Ukrainian [pilot] would be released in September.

As is known, on June 1, Savchenko’s lawyer Nikolai Polozov announced the completion of the investigation into the case of the Ukrainian.

Savchenko, almost a year ago [Editor’s note: on June 17, 2014], was kidnapped by Luhansk insurgents and taken to Russia, where she has since been kept in prison. She is accused of involvement in the murder of two Russian journalists and illegally crossing the border into Russia.

    É lamentável alguém ser sequestrado por bandidos, ser acusado sem provas e ainda permanecer preso. Que mundo é esse que nós vivemos.
