MOSCOW, April 29 /TASS/. Nadezhda Savchenko, the former Ukrainian servicewoman convicted in Russia, has filled in documents necessary for her handover to Ukraine under the Convention, Savchenko’s lawyer Nikolai Polozov told TASS.
"I met Nadezhda Savchenko in a pre-trial detention ward. Together, we filled in the documents necessary for her handover to Ukraine under the Convention. All the applications are addressed to Director of the Russian Prison Service [Gennady] Korniyenko," Polozov said.
He added that now the deadlines for Savchenko’s release depended entirely on the authorities’ efficiency.
Polozov said that Savchenko felt better but her recovery was slow after the dry hunger strike.
On March 22, 2016, the city court in Donetsk, Russia’s southern Rostov region, sentenced Savchenko to 22 years in a general regime colony and a fine worth 30,000 rubles (466.77 USD) on charges of murdering Russian journalists Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin from the All-Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company (VGTRK) and of illegal crossing of the Russian state border.
At present, Savchenko is staying in a pre-trial detention center in Novocherkassk, southern Russia.
