Protection of Ukrainian pilots Hope Savchenko does not exclude recourse to the ECtHR in connection with impossibility of consideration of her case by a jury, reports «Interfax-Ukraine».

«Essentially, we will not be able to get a jury trial, the decision of the constitutional court closes for us such a right. But it can be a separate subject for appeal to the European court of human rights, we do not exclude the preparation of appropriate complaints,» he said on Thursday, her lawyer mark Feigin.

The lawyer recalled that Savchenko asked the court to have her case examined by a jury, but was refused. «We have reason to appeal, as the court found in the Penal legislation of the Russian Federation unconstitutional, it is necessary to study in detail,» he said.

The lawyer stressed that the refusal of the constitutional court of revision of the already considered cases and changing the form of proceedings in cases that are already in the court, is ambiguous.

Earlier Thursday, the constitutional court ruled that women have the right to demand trial by jury, a ban on him failed to meet the Constitution.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of the COP Valery Zorkin said that the case Savchenko cannot be considered by the jury. «If the case is to be handled with the participation of a panel of judges, they will be considered. If you have not been assigned, the applicant may apply for review of his case by a jury. If the case already considered, as in the case of Ukrainian citizen Savchenko, it is not subject to review by jury», — said the Chairman of the constitutional court reporters.

We will remind, the verdict of the Ukrainian pilots must announce closer to 8 March. March 3, Savchenko will act in court with last word.
