Ukrainian MPs have arrived at a rally in support of Savchenko, reports a QHA correspondent from the site of the rally.

“Yulia Timoshenko has arrived, too. She is holding a placard reading ‘Free Nadezhda Savchenko’. Timoshenko has urged everyone to stage similar rallies outside Russian embassies in other countries to speed up Savchenko’s release,” a QHA correspondent reports.

Alexandra Kuzhel and Sergey Vlasenko have also arrived at the rally.

Security around the Russian Embassy has been stepped up. Buses full of police officers are standing near the embassy’s building.
