KIEV, May 28. /TASS/. Ukraine’s President Pyotr Poroshenko has had a meeting with former Ukrainian servicewoman Nadezhda Savchenko, a member of the country’s parliament Verkhovna Rada and a PACE delegate from Ukraine, the presidential press service said on Saturday.
"Pyotr Poroshenko has outlined prospects for presenting Ukraine’s stance at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) and the European Parliament with Nadezhda Savchenko," the statement said.
The Ukrainian president suggested that Savchenko should pay visits to European countries and also discussed the situation in Donbass and the Savchenko-Sentsov sanctions list with her.
On May 25, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree to pardon the former Ukrainian serviceman Nadezhda Savchenko, who had been in custody in Russia for the past two years. Savchenko was handed over to the Ukrainian side later in the day. She was convicted in Russia for directing the pro-Kiev forces’ artillery fire in southeast Ukraine that had killed two Russian journalists - Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin. Savchenko was also found guilty of illegally crossing the Russian border and was sentenced to 22 years in a general-security penal colony and a fine of 30,000 rubles ($440).
