MOSCOW, August 27 /TASS/. Russia considers it absurd to persecute Russia’s First Deputy Foreign Minister Vladimir Titov over the case of former Ukrainian army serviceman Nadezhda Savchenko, a Russian Foreign Ministry source told TASS on Thursday.
"The absurdity of actions and statements made by Ukrainian authorities on the Savchenko case is apparent," the source said. "It is an example of political partiality and lack of legal culture," the source added.
"The Foreign Ministry does not deal with confinement issues; a court is going to establish the measure of Savchenko’s guilt," the Russian Foreign Ministry source went on to say.
Earlier on Thursday, one of Savchenko’s lawyers, Nikolay Polozov, posted a photo of an allegedly official notification of Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s Office in which it said that it suspected Titov of aiding and abetting Savchenko’s illegal imprisonment.
Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s Office has published no official information so far.
According to investigators, Savchenko secretly adjusted fire on a militia roadblock in the vicinity of Metallist village in the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (DPR) during combat operations near the eastern Ukrainian city of Luhansk on June 17, 2014. As a result, civilians and two Russian journalists (from VGTRK) - Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin - were killed.
