"Thank you very much both to Jean-Claude and Donald for this strong position about Savchenko and other political hostages illegally kept in Russia. I have handed to EU leaders so-called Savchenko list, which was initiated together with me and European Parliament. We hope it will be considered. I suggest that it will be opened and at least not limited to Savchenko's list, but enlist everyone responsible in Russia for every Ukrainian that is illegally detained. I mean Sentsov, Kolchenko, Afanasyev and others," said Petro Poroshenko.
