"The Russian citizens in opposition are the small part of the whole nation, the only part that can think rationally. We need to speak with them, so that there were more of such people".
Ukrainian MP Nadiya Savchenko stated this during the session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe to 112 Ukraine.
"These Russians in the opposition support me and other political prisoners. This is the small part of the Russian nation that can think rationally. We need to talk to them and to find more of them in the Russian Federation. They are fighting against Kremlin, so they are our friends", Nadiya Savchenko said.
She also stressed that it is important that Ukrainians and Russian oppositionists could have the bilateral support to a common problem.
MP also added that it may be convenient in terms of support of Ukrainian political prisoners.
"If we have someone in Russia who supports us, it is easier to deliver some things to prison or to write a letter to our prisoners", Nadiya Savchenko said.
