Ilya Novikov, a lawyer of the Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko, said that his client “will sooner or later be liberated because of “diplomatic pressure,” Joinfo.ua reports.
“The result wil be very simple – diplomatic pressure will increase, and because of the pressure she will be freed sooner or later.”
In an interview with Hromadske TB Ilya Novikov said that “it has nothing to do” with the court’s decision to be made.
“The verdict is already written. We should not cherish illusions… People, who believe that in the Russian court a pure procedural activity can lead to something, should take a look at Sentsov’s case – if there are still any questions, his sentence will answer all of them. The sentence for Nadiya Savchenko will be the same,” said Novikov.
It should be recalled that the preliminary hearings of the case of the pilot and Ukrainian people’s deputy Nadiya Savchenko will start in the Donetsk City Court on September 15, according to the press-secretary of the Donetsk City Court Tatiana Dieva.
