    - having regard to the Geneva convention and to the special legislative rules concerning elected parliamentarians;

    B. whereas Ms Savchenko, born 1981, has a distinguished military career behind her, having been the only female soldier in the Ukrainian peacekeeping troops in Iraq and the first female soldier to enrol at Ukraine's Air Force University;

    C. whereas Ms Savchenko had volunteered to take part in the fights in the eastern parts of Ukraine, as part of the Aidar Battalion, when she was captured;

    D. whereas the Russian authorities have ignored the multiple Ukrainian and international requests to hand over Ms Savchenko and instead accused her of terrorism and involvement in the killing of two Russian journalists;
