Nadiya Savchenko at Basmannyi court hearing on 26 March 2015 

2015/03/27 • News

On 27 March 2015, a day after a hearing in the Basmannyi court in Moscow where the charges against Nadiya Savchenko that carried a 20-year prison sentence were found to be a “technical mistake,”  Nadiya’s lawyer Mark Feygin tweeted another letter that she wrote to her supporters, in which she thanks her supporters for being at the hearing.

Good day to you, good people!

Thank you to everyone who came to my court hearing yesterday. When they were transferring me back to SIZO-1 [the detention center], I heard you shouting “Nadiya! Nadiya!” :)

Then the driver turned on the siren in the paddy wagon to drown out your voices and chase you away. I cracked up laughing! :))) I heard you anyway! :) I’d hear your voice even through walls.

I only ask that you be careful; I really don’t want to end up hearing your voices in the prison cell next to me… 😉

Meeting with you gave me an ocean-full of strength! It gave me enough strength for the next court hearing.

Until we meet again! And I hope, finally, it’ll be in FREEDOM!!!

    The persecution of Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko is a disgrace. Just another example of the barbarity of the Putin regime.

    Russia stands condemned for trying to destroy this Ukrainian hero who has become a symbol of resistance to Russian aggression against Ukraine.

    I did what i could. I sent Putin an email. You can find this on the internet. He or someone that looks at emails in the Kremlin knows it came from America and i signed my name and added American Citizen. Also i pray for her. I don’t think the world knows of her and her problem. Her attorney or someone close needs to get this in the open for people to see on the internet.

      Charles, WHY does the world NOT know about her? WHY is news about her being CENSORED in the Western media? The Russian thief Khodorkovsky who stole 70 billion dollars was treated as a great martyr/hero with MAJOR news coverage in the Western media. Why did this EGREGIOUS embezzler/criminal get the ROYAL treatment in the Western MEDIA, while there is a STRICT BLACKOUT in the Western media about SAVCHENKO. WHY IS THIS SO?

      • Charles J. Kollman

        As a human that is just a citizen that votes and believes in God i am doing what i can plus sending info about her to people on my email contact list. I would say if you are American to call or write your elected officials. The other day someone i know called Home Land Security and asked them why do they do nothing about the fact there are 35 Muslim in the US. He was told to call his elected officials and ask them Why don’t Americans hear about this the FEMA Buses Trains prison camps all over the US. Why don’t you hear about the million black plastic boxes FEMA. Why did the US. Government support the orange revolution why did they support the demonstrations in Kiev. Strange but when people in America meaning citizens the government is right there with the guys in black.

    What disappoints me most about this whole case is I don’t think I’ve ever heard any of our elected World leaders bring it up to Putin. It was a sham. It was a criminal act. And it was a farce that our leaders did not do anything to try to resolve this.

    There are many other Ukrainians and Tatars in prisons (and yes Russians too) just because they are pawns that the diminutive little cretin uses as tools. Hopefully, when he ends up in prison at The Hague, he never sees the light of day again.

    Here’s a site with a Youtube video that all the Russian trolls should start seriously watching and believing in because if Putin isn’t himself assassinated, this is where his future is for his crimes against humanity and their ‘trolling’ paychecks dry up.

      Brent as i have said before you are the best here with common sense and knowledge. Why is there no info on her in the west news. I pray for her and sent Putin an email urging him to let her go and return to Ukraine. I am going on the low side to many people here are missing the point. It is more important for them to correct my spelling and grammar plus they don’t like what they claim is foul language. When you talk bout ele3cted leaders what Country are you meaning.
