Ukraine will never – never! – recognize neither the trial, not the sentence in Nadiya Savchenko’s case. It was a disgraceful trial perpetrated by the aggressor state against Ukraine’s Officer, who protected her Motherland from enemy invasion, like she was supposed to.  

During the Normandy format meetings, Putin claimed he would bring Nadiya Savchenko back to Ukraine after the trial is over. It’s time to fulfill the promise.

In turn, I’m ready to handle over two Russian troopers detained in Ukraine, as they participated in the military aggression against Ukraine. After the trial in their case is over, I’m ready to ensure their passage to Russia. That kind of approach is in line with Article 6 of Minsk agreements foreseeing  the “all for all” exchange.  

I believe our joint efforts will be crowned with success, and our heroine, our bravest woman will get back home to build a new Ukraine together with us.  


Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin

The sentence is quite expected, but still a very painful one. It’s not the end of our struggle. It’s the beginning of its new stage to #FreeSavchenko.

Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk

The power of spirit of the Ukrainian nation is unbreakable. Nadiya Savchenko is stronger than hundreds of Kremlin-organized trials – she will be free!
