It is noted that the decision was made unanimously.
The candidate’s program includes a constitutional change in the political system.
“The delegates held pomegranates in their hands and chanted “Freedom to Nadiya Savchenko, freedom to Ukrainian political prisoners,” the report says.
This information was confirmed by the sister of Nadiya Savchenko.
