Ukraine's leader hands over ‘Savchenko list' to the European Council's President Donald Tusk
Petro Poroshenko has thanked his EU counterparts for supporting Ukrainian political prisoners held in Russia.
"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.
