The head of U.S. state Department John Kerry called for the release of Ukrainian pilots Hope Savchenko, accused in Russia under the case on the death of journalists in the Donbass. About it it is spoken in the message published on the Agency’s website.
“I am deeply concerned about the condition and situation of the Ukrainian pilot and Verkhovna Rada Deputy Savchenko, who on Friday refused to take food and water in protest at her continued detention by the Russian Federation”, — stated in the message.
