@Sviatogor I think that symbolism is crucial. In this case. IFAIK he was detained by terrorist while she was doing her duty, defend country, and after detantion. She was handed to a state who “has nothing with conflict in UA” and the Russian boys in UA are merely tourist 😉 to be judge by.
Nadia was international face of putin agression on UA. Media and UA politician used that situation very well to send a strong message to the world.
I look this case in that context.
