At the request of the Representative of Ukraine to the EU Kostiantyn Yelisieiev with a call to respond to another gross violation of human rights in Russia regarding the situation with the pilot of Armed Forces of Ukraine N.Savchenko, the EU sent a reply, expressing deep concern over the kidnapping, transportation to Russia and illegal detention of Nadiya Savchenko and emphasized the readiness to continue to respond to all aspects of human rights violations in the context of destabilization of the situation in eastern Ukraine.

"This situation raises questions on Russia's compliance with its international obligations. EU calls on the Russian Federation to constantly adhere to obligations arising from membership in the Council of Europe and the European Convention on Human Rights. EU closely monitors the developments of this case through its delegations in Kyiv and Moscow, "- was noted in the response.

It was also noted that "the European Union will continue to support Ukraine in its European path and in efforts to ensure security, stability and prosperity for Ukrainian citizens."

The situation with N.Savchenko among other actions aimed at destabilizing the situation in eastern Ukraine, was an additional argument in the decision to tighten EU sanctions against Russia, which came into effect last week, and those expected to be imposed in the near future.

As you know, in its latest resolution on the situation in Ukraine from July 17, 2014, the European Parliament also called for the immediate release of Ukrainian pilot N.Savchenko, illegally detained in Russia, as well as all other hostages.
