According to her, Savchenko received letters of support from the prisoners from the detention center in Ukraine, as well as from the common people. 'And if there is such a massive wave it again will draw attention to Sentsov, Kol'chenko, Karpyuk, Klykh and other Ukrainians abducted by Russia.' - Said Vira Savchenko.
