MOSCOW, March 17 /TASS/. It is impossible for the EU diplomats to exert pressure on Russia’s judicial authorities in Nadezhda Savchenko’s case, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
Russian diplomats met the accredited diplomats of the European Union delegation and the embassies of separate EU member states in Moscow at the Russian Foreign Ministry on Thursday.
"We noted separately that any attempts to exert pressure on Russian judicial authorities in the context of Nadezhda Savchenko’s case were impossible and contradicting the universally recognized democratic principle of the supremacy of law," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
Humanitarian situation in Ukraine was also part of agenda at the meeting with the foreign diplomats.
"The conversation dwelt on some aspects linked to humanitarian situation in Ukraine and around it. The Russian side expressed its bewilderment at the absence of a due European Union reaction to the recent attacks on Russian embassies and general consulates in Ukraine that took place early in March," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
