All international norms are being observed in relation to Ukrainian pilot Nadezhda Savchenko, held in Moscow over the murder of Russian journalists in the south-east of Ukraine, the Russian Foreign Ministry's envoy for human rights, democracy and the rule of law, Konstantin Dolgov, has said.
"As far as Nadezhda Savchenko is concerned, we are abiding by all international norms and standards in her case. As far as I know, German doctors have visited her. From the point of view of international standards, all necessary measures have been taken," Dolgov said, when answering a question from Interfax.
"Any attempt to exert pressure on the work of Russian investigators and the court proceedings is categorically unacceptable," he said.
At the same time, Russian citizen Konstantin Yaroshenko is being mistreated at an American prison, Dolgov said.
"We are doing everything in compliance with international law and international standards, while other countries grossly trample on international standards as far as their treatment of prison inmates and allowing doctors to access them is concerned. I would like to draw special attention to the case of Konstantin Yaroshenko. We all remember very well for how long he was denied medical care," he said.
