Nadiya Savchenko, Ukraine’s MP and former Air Force pilot, treats Crimea as already lost cause. Today, at the session of the Parliamentary committee for the national defense, she refuted her yesterday’s statement.
‘I never said one should give up on Crimea. It is already lost. I don’t want people to be misinformed: those telling you it is still ours…they lost it back in 2014,’ she said.
On January 17, during her interview with 112 Ukraine TV channel, Nadiya Savchenko said the following: ‘Whatever my fellow MPs are saying, we will have to refuse from keeping Crimea. It can be viewed as the non-recognized occupied territory, like that of Transnistria. In order to prevent Donbas from becoming another Transnistria in Ukraine, we’ll have to leave Crimea occupied, and then it will be possible to release Donbas. I don’t see that happening any other way’. That was her comment on the possible solution of the Donbas conflict and Crimean crisis.
