Nadiya Savchenko’s sister Vira tried to visit Nadiya in prison on July 2nd and, although she waited all day to go in and see her sister, the Russian legal system did not let her in, but Nadiya’s lawyer Ilya Novikov and Ukraine Consul of Moscow Gennady Breskalenko did talk to Nadiya and brought out these origami paper dolls, which Nadiya made by hand for some Moscow children, to show to her sister Vira.

Vira wrote:
“I have no words, although today they did not let me meet with Nadiya, this raised my mood, a puppet theater, made with her own hands, for children from Moscow that write to her … I just can not stop smiling))) it’s so pretty! Nadya will always find something to occupy her hands when they ‘block her legs’  🙂

Ilya Novikov, her lawyer took them. I photographed them near the jail, SIZO-1.”

Vira also posted a photo of Ukraine’s Consul of Moscow, Gennady Breskalenko, holding one of the paper toys Nadiya made, a poodle-like dog with a #1 gold medal around it’s neck, and she wrote:

“And this is the best Ukrainian Consul in the world)) Gennady Semenovich Breskalenko, who is always courageously storming the walls of all the prisons in Moscow where our guys are kept…”

    It would be wonderful to be able to purchase some of her work, but I assume that isn’t possible….
