As in the case of Savchenko a lot of policy is mixed, so it is difficult to tell unambiguously, what actions can promote her release. The lawyer and a human rights activist Eduard Bagirov declared in the comment to "GORDON" .
"There is a big percent of political interests of the leadership of the Russian Federation in criminal case on which accuse Nadezhda Savchenko. Therefore unambiguously to call the list of legal mechanisms which will help to release and return Savchenko home, rather difficult. At the same time, there are those steps which are taken by the lawyer and interested people, including the status of the People's Deputy, the status of the member of Parliamentary assembly and on the first a meeting of PACE, she will be provided the status of the diplomat",– Bagirov considers.
"The Russian Federation is a subject of international law and will accept the obligation, proceeding from the international convention on the status of diplomats. They will be obliged to release her. But all this under a big question, because on all norms even in Russian legislation she had to be released from jails at least",– the lawyer noted.
"What possible can be done? Certainly, it is possible to give this case to the European court and according to the decision of this court, to release Nadezhda Savchenko. The second mechanism – it has to become one of the main subjects of discussion in Minsk, in Astana, or in any other place where negotiations will pass, it is not important in what format. She is not just detained, she is not just military woman, but she is the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada, she became a symbol of Ukraine. I think, at a meeting of representatives of Ukraine and Russia in any format, in any city in the three of important questions there has to be Nadezhda Savchenko's question",– Eduard Bagirov added.
According to Eduard Bagirov, everyone who was accessory to kidnapping Nadezhda Savchenko's could be put into the separate sanctions list, as it was with those who was involved in punishment over the Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky.
"There is a list of Magnitsky which was maintained by Americans. It was possible to make Nadezhda Savchenko's list and to include there the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, the head of the Investigative Committee of Russia, including the staff of FSB, leaders of gangs and any formations of Donetsk and Lugansk areas who were involved in her kidnapping. These sanctions, including economic and political up to a ban of entry into any civilized country, have to work until Savchenko appears to be free. Everything can be useful"— Bagirov noted.
