No letters from Poroshenko to Savchenko – Tsegolko

16:05, 10 March 2016

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko did not write any letters to Ukrainian pilot, MP and member of the Ukrainian delegation to PACE Nadia Savchenko, Presidential Press Secretary Svyatoslav Tsegolko told an UNIAN correspondent by phone.


According to Tsegolko, Poroshenko has verbally expressed his support to Savchenko who is illegally detained in the Russian Federation.

"The president asked Savchenko's sister Vira and her mother to express his words of encouragement to Nadia. But he didn't send any letters," Tsegolko said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Savchenko's lawyer Mark Feygin tweeted on Thursday that Nadia had stopped her 'dry' hunger strike at the request of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.
