In the last word, which is published on the website of the Ukrainian pilots in Facebook, she refuses to admit guilt. “I do not admit no guilt, no conviction, no Russian court,” – says Savchenko.
In the event of conviction Savchenko intends to starve. “In ten days I will declare a hunger strike and then in Russia not more than ten days to get me back to Ukraine,” – says Savchenko.
It also makes it clear that he expects the diplomatic skills of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, who promised the mother of the defendant to return it to Ukraine “holidays in may 2015”. Savchenko hopes that Poroshenko will manage to agree with Russia. “And yet for me to trade, I will leave Russia and I’m still back in Ukraine — dead or alive, but will return!”, – believes Savchenko.
Ukrainian pilot hopes that ten days before the entry into force of sentence under the prison gates will be day and night to stand by her sister or mother. Savchenko said that he expects the sympathy not only compatriots, but also “honest and decent Russian citizens”, which will bring the hot hours, sandwiches and warm blankets.
“And so begins the Maidan! And it you need?! You are afraid of this fire! So the Kremlin is better to get me back to Ukraine sooner and alive!!!”, — added Savchenko (original spelling retained).
According to Savchenko, in the event of conviction it will not appeal, as the court in Russia is unfair, and wants “the whole civilized democratic world has understood that Russia is a third world country with a totalitarian regime,” “in which flout human rights and international law”.
Earlier on March 3 the court of Donetsk of the Rostov region court has postponed to March 9 statement Savchenko with last word in court, after which she went on hunger strike.
