MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the press secretary, many world politicians were interested in meeting Savchenko and learning about the state of affairs in her country.
"Nadezhda has… explained that she will not change her point of view and would continue explaining on all available platforms in the world, in Europe, the actual situation in Ukraine, regarding war, corruption, political and economic crisis," Tatyana Protorchenko said in an interview aired by 112 Ukraine broadcaster.
According to the decision of the Ukrainian parliament, Savchenko's membership in the delegation has allegedly contributed to her release from custody in Russia, and there are no grounds for such membership at the moment.
As a result of Ukraine’s October 2014 parliamentary elections, Savchenko became a member of the parliament from the Batkivshchyna Party and was elected a member of the parliamentary delegation to PACE.
Savchenko had been detained in Russia since mid-2014 over her suspected role in the killing of two Russian journalists who were covering the Ukrainian conflict. In late May 2016, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree to pardon the Ukrainian national.
