YALTA, October 26. /TASS/. The Kremlin has no plans to react towards the arrival of Ukrainian MP Nadezhda Savchenko in Moscow, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.
"All legal acts against Savchenko have been completed, she is not banned from entering Russia’s territory," Peskov told reporters. "So there is nothing to react here."
The MP of Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada Savchenko arrived in the Russian Supreme Court earlier in the day. The court is due to consider on Wednesday a complaint against the verdict in the case of Ukrainians Nikolay Karpyuk and Stanislav Klykh, the members of the UNA-UNSO nationalist organization.
Peskov said thee issue on the exchange of Karpyuk and Klykh was not discussed at the talks in the Normandy format in Berlin.
"No," Peskov said when asked if the fate of the two Ukrainians was discussed by the Normandy Quartet leaders last week. "Frankly speaking, I’m not even aware if such a discussion is held on the swap or other things."
In late May, a court in Grozny sentenced the two members of the Ukrainian organization to long prison terms on charges of participation in combat actions on the territory of Chechnya in 1994 and 1995. Karpyuk was sentenced to 22.5 years and Klyh to 20 years in jail, respectively.
Savchenko, the former pilot, had been sentenced in Russia to 22 years in jail over the killing of two Russian journalists in eastern Ukraine. She spent nearly two years in Russian custody and was pardoned by the Russian president on May 25, 2016.
