The manifestation in defence of N. Savchenko near the Russian embassy in Warsaw

On 26 January, 2015, London, Toronto, Budapest, Rome, Montreal, Bern and other cities organised rallies in defence of Nadiya Savchenko, the Ukrainian lieutenant, unlawfully held in custody by the Russian authorities.

Responding to the call of Counsel Mark Feigin, who had announced an International Day in defence of Nadiya on his Facebook page, Warsaw residents also gathered in order to protest. Along with Euromaidan Warsaw, at the Embassy of the Russian Federation we demanded the immediate release of the Ukrainian woman and other  political prisoners, illegally held in custody in Russia.
