The Kremlin's position on the case of jailed Ukrainian fighter pilot, Ukrainian MP and member of the Ukrainian delegation to PACE Nadiya Savchenko hasn't changed, and she's facing court action, Putin's press secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters, Russian news agency TASS reported.
He declined to comment on Savchenko's possible amnesty and a resolution, recently passed by the European Parliament, which mentions possible sanctions against those who are responsible for "Savchenko's detention as a prisoner of war in a prison in Russia."
"An investigation is under way. And she's accused of involvement in a very serious crime. The case will be brought to court," Peskov said.
"The president has said about that. Nothing has changed, and I have nothing to add," he said.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the European Parliament on Thursday passed a resolution calling Russia to immediately release Savchenko.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said he welcomed the resolution passed by the EP in an attempt to help release the Ukrainian pilot.
