Sergey Lavrov: Savchenko’s behavior makes doctors visit impossible
The Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov commented on the court's refusal to let Ukrainian doctors visit Nadezhda Savchenko. The Foreign Minister noted that Savchenko's insolent behavior in the court made a doctors' visit impossible.
Sergei Lavrov said that on the morning of March 9 he had a telephone conversation with the Ukrainian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Pavel Klimkin, who raised the question of a visit by Ukrainian doctors to Savchenko for a medical examination. Lavrov pointed out that the Russian side had taken steps to grant a petition on a doctors’ visit, proceeding from principles of humanism.
"However, Savchenko's insolent conduct during the hearing and her abusive remarks towards the court have changed the situation, making such a visit impossible," the Russian minister said.
"Savchenko feels well and does exercise, being under constant supervision of Russian doctors," RBC cited the statement of the Russian Foreign Ministry as saying.
