“More than 40 people are included into the list of those who are involved in the case of Nadezhda Savchenko and can be put under sanctions from the Ukrainian government,” Interfax news agency reports.

According to information available, “the number of people in the “Savchenko list” is much more than announced,” a source in diplomatic circles says.

The list includes the head of the FSB, Alexander Bortnikov, the Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia, Alexander Bastrykin, first Deputy Foreign Minister, Vladimir Titov. Igor Plotnitsky, the Head of the unrecognised Luhansk People’s Republic, is also under sanctions.

 

Earlier, it was reported that 57 members of the European Parliament urged the European Union to impose personal sanctions against Vladimir Putin and another 28 people in connection with allegedly“illegal” actions against Savchenko. The sanction policy includes assets freeze, ban on entry into the EU and confiscation of all property persons responsible for actions against Savchenko.

On Thursday, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko handed over a “Savchenko list” to the head of the European Council, Donald Tusk.

According to the version of the Russian Investigative Committee, in the summer of 2014, Savchenko was adjusting artillery fire of the Ukrainian armed forces in Donbas which resulted in the death of Russian journalists Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin. Prosecutor demanded to sentence Savchrnko for 23 years in prison.
