People's Deputy Nadiya Savchenko resigned from the Batkivshchyna political party. This was announced by MP Ivan Krulko (Batkivshchyna political party), Ukrainian News reports.
"Really, Nadiya Savchenko left the party. She began her personal political career. We as a fraction can not talk about her as a member of our party. She does not coordinate her actions with us anymore", Krulko said.
According to the MP, Savchenko made a corresponding statement a few weeks ago, but the party decided not to make its public disclosure.
He also stressed that political power does not intend to discredit Savchenko.
As is known, Savchenko held a meeting with the leaders of the militants Zakharchenko and Plotnytskyi in Minsk. According to her, the meeting was effective and they focused on "strengthening of the Minsk format". Batkivshchyna political party named such actions inadmissible.
Nadiya Savchenko believes that Ukraine, following the example of European countries, should decide on the status of military conflict in the Donbas, and act according to this status. "European politicians have recognized and helped us to adopt a resolution that we have a conflict with Russia, and not internal conflict. Ukraine needs to be consistent and to recognize the war, because the war and the anti-terrorist operation are different things. If it is the war, the occupied lands and people must be freed, and the territorial integrity must be restored. If it is anti-terrorist operation, then all of them are the terrorists and we must shoot everyone with no excuses", she said.
At the same time Savchenko added that Ukraine must also decide on whether there are Ukrainians in the occupied territories, their percentage, and act accordingly.
