Germany has demanded that Russia allow German doctors to see Ukrainian MP and pilot Nadiya Savchenko detained there, the Ukrainian president's press secretary, Svyatoslav Tseholko, has said on Facebook.

"As per Ukraine's request, Germany has taken a demarche against Russia, both in Berlin and Moscow, by demanding an immediate access for German doctors (Charite hospital) to see Nadiya Savchenko," he said.

On 30 March, President Petro Poroshenko enacted the National Security and Defence Council's decision on sanctions against individuals involved in unlawful actions against Nadiya Savchenko, film director Oleh Sentsov and activist Oleksandr Kolchenko.
