As a result of concerns over Nadiya Savchenko, MEP Petras Auštrevičius (ALDE, LT) initiated a letter addressed to the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Frederica Mogherini. The letter calls for adoption of personal sanctions on EU level against individuals who were involved in the kidnapping, unlawful detention, imprisonment, and fabrication of charges against Nadiya Savchenko.

57 Members of the European Parliament urged to consider targeted sanctions encompassing restriction of entry to the EU, blocking of bank accounts and seizing property in the EU territory of 29 citizens of the Russian Federation as a response to the prolonged illegal detention of Nadiya Savchenko by the Russian authorities.
