Hillary Clinton, one of the candidates for president of the United States, firmly demanded that the Russian authorities stop the trial of Ukrainian female pilot Nadiya Savchenko and set her free.

Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that Russia should immediately release Savchenko.

"Russia should remove all charges against Savchenko and immediately release her," said former US Secretary.

According to Clinton, the Russian authorities are also obliged to fulfill all the key points of the Minsk Agreement to end the war in Donbass.

"It must also comply with all their obligations under the Minsk Agreement, to put an end to the conflict in eastern Ukraine, which took thousands of lives and forced more than 1.5 million people to flee their homes," she said.

Hillary Clinton mentioned that she still supports all Ukrainians and especially Nadiya Savchenko.

"I always supported the rights of women and all people around the world who suffer from injustice", the candidate for the US presidency summed up.

The present United States Secretary of State John Kerry strictly urged Russian authorities to release the captive Savchenko, who is blamed for the deaths of Russian journalists in Donbass.

Kerry is deeply concerned about the state of health of Ukrainian pilot, who has declared a hunger strike in Russian prison.
