"It's the third anniversary of Maidan. It is time for politicians to keep their promises without a third Maidan itself. I'm fulfilling my first promise: I waive parliamentary immunity. I urge all people's deputies of Ukraine, President of Ukraine and Ukrainian judges to do the same ", wrote Savchenko.
Later Savchenko talked on this subject with reporters in Verkhovna Rada. According to her, this decision won't get into Parliament's Hall.
"They do not want to approve this decision in Verkhovna Rada, because in this case, honest MPs, more or less decent, would write applications for the removal of parliamentary immunity, and those who fear (the opposition is afraid that it will become immediately very persecuted by the authorities), ant authorities are afraid, because they are well aware that opposition will come to power, therefore all those people cling to the parliamentary immunity," said Savchenko.
"They say that it's a political suicide, especially in my case, but I think that a time will come they would welcome my statement and say, finally, we can deprive her of parliamentary immunity", added the MP.
