MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Kremlin considers foreign interference in Russian court hearings, including in the case of Ukrainian national Nadezhda Savchenko, unacceptable, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.
"The president has repeatedly given explanations on this matter – both to foreign counterparts and on other levels – that this is a trial, any outside interference in the jurisdiction of our courts is unacceptable, it is impossible," Peskov told reporters.
Russian prosecutors are seeking a 23-year prison sentence for Savchenko. The 34-year-old Ukrainian citizen denies all the allegations. A court ruling in the case is expected to be announced on March 21-22.
