Human Rights Commissioner in Russia takes full responsibility for delay in admission of doctors to Savchenko

On 14 March, Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Ella Pamfilova has announced she takes full responsibility for the delay in admission of Ukrainian doctors to Nadezhda Savchenko.

"I take full responsibility for the delay. The Federal Penitentiary Service is not at fault in this situation. Unfortunately, the procedure of arranging a visit of foreign doctors to the pre-trial detention centre has happened to be more complicated than I could suppose and requires additional agreements," Ms Pamfilova said.

"Having received appeals from the Ukrainian party, I have sent requests to all the authorities responsible for solution of this issue. I hope all lacking procedures will be held and the Ukrainian doctors will be allowed to visit Nadezhda Savchenko," Ms Pamfilova added.

On Friday, the Press Service of the Ukraine’s State Affairs Department announced that Ukrainian doctors were not permitted to visit Ms Savchenko. Interfax source reported the medics were not allowed to see the detained since they failed to have due documents issued by the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The defence of Ms Savchenko is going to appeal to the Russian General Prosecutor’s Office against the actions of the Federal Penitentiary Service, lawyer Nikolay Polozov said.
