Nadia Savchenko assures that she did not give any promises on prisoners exchange with the so-called leaders of the “DPR” and “LPR”.
At the same time she emphasized that she only talked about the problem of prisoners’ exchange and about nothing more.
"I initiated the meeting, at the same time I was released from prison. The first thing I said at that time was that I was ready to talk with the other party. Through negotiators (the meeting was organized - Ed.), who worked many times and still work with that side and Ukraine. These are our people and it is not only Volodymyr Ruban, there are six people, who liberated the people and were repeatedly engaged in the exchanging, "she said.
The war and ATO are two different things and we should act differently in each situation, Savchenko also stressed.
MP ("Batkivshchyna") Nadia Savchenko believes that Ukraine should follow the example of European countries and decide on the status of military conflict in the Donbas and act according to this status. She announced this in program on channel 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"European politicians recognized and helped us adopt a resolution that we have an ongoing conflict with Russia, not the internal conflict. Now Ukraine has to be consistent and recognize it. Because war and ATO are different things. If it’s war, then the land is seized and people should be released, and the land too. If it’s ATO then all of them are terrorists and we should shoot them all, from small to large, " she said.
Ukraine must also decide whether there are its citizen n the occupied territories their percentage, and act accordingly, Savchenko noted.
Earlier it was reported that Nadia Savchenko explained why she negotiated with Russian-backed separatists. "I will meet as many times as necessary, with those who need. Even with the Satan," - Ukrainian MP on her talks with Zakharchenko and Plotnitsky from DPR/LPR.
