"We had no illusions [about Nadiya Savchenko's verdict] after verdicts in other cases of Ukrainian citizens on trial in Russia. We have 8 or 9 [guilty] verdicts at the moment. The main question is what steps will the Ukrainian government take following the verdict – whether they will make enough efforts to have her released" - #LetMyPeopleGo campaign coordinator Ms. Maria Tomak said about the anticipated ‘guilty' verdict in Nadiya Savchenko's trial.
