The Ukrainian TV channel 1+1 jointly with the Ukrainian MFA released a video on the Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko, who is being illegally held in jail in Russia. The video is dubbed into 5 languages: Ukrainian, English, French, German and Spanish.

On June 17, Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko was kidnapped in Donbas by pro-Russian terrorists and then illegally transported it to Russia, where she was imprisoned in Voronezh. Savchenko’s mother pestered officials for almost a month until she found out where her daughter is. Russia accuses Savchenko of involvement in killing Russian journalists.

The terrorists who abducted Savchenko feared their prisoner and called her a “superwarrior.” For a long time the Ukrainian pilot was not allowed to be visited by the Consul of Ukraine. A little later, the European Court took up Savchenko’s case.

The video is also available in Ukrainian:
