Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko first visiting PACE after release from Russian jail

West is to pay attention at human rights violations in Crimea, since no observation done yet

The Ukrainian delegation in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe is indignant with the report of Thorbjorn Jagland, the OSCE Secretary General. 

The document supposed to drop a lightshed at the human rights violation in the Russia-occupied regions does not contain a single word of Russia's crimes in the occupied Crimea. Recently freed from Russian jail Nadiya Savchenko insisted the problems of the Crimean Tatars should be considered as well, taking into account the observers have no access to the peninsula. This is her first trip abroad after releasing from Russian jail.

The Parliamentary Assembly President Pedro Agramunt greeted Savchenko's release along with the extradition of other two prisoners Hennadiy Afanasyev and Yurii Soloshenko to Ukraine. Savchenko called on Europe to stay united in support of Ukraine which pays for the peace in other countries with lives of its citizens.

Nadiya Savchenko, Ukraine's Representative in PACE: "Russia wanted me to be here only in 22 years? It was you all wanting to see me earlier and did your best to make it possible. I'm happy to be with you now. Currently Ukraine is standing at the front line. The peace of the whole Europe is estimated through the lives of Ukrainian citizens. I call you all to support us in this effort with your tough, consistent and clear position."
