KIEV (Sputnik) — Ukrainian national Nadezhda Savchenko, convicted in Russia of being an accomplice to the murder of two journalists in Donbas, said on Friday that she is ready to become president of Ukraine if that is what the people want.

"Ukrainians, if you need me to become a president, sure, I will be president… Honestly, I would not say I want it, but, if necessary, I will do it," Savchenko said at press conference.

On Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree to pardon Savchenko. She was deported to Kiev the same day.

In parallel, a plane carrying Yevgeny Yerofeyev and Alexander Alexandrov, Russian citizens convicted and sentenced in Ukraine for terrorism-related activities, landed at Moscow’s Vnukovo International Airport after Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed a corresponding decree to pardon them.
