Ukrainian servicewoman Nadezhda Savchenko in an interview with “Radio Liberty” urged Russia and Ukraine to be “good neighbors” and not “bad brothers”.
“We will never brotherly people as before. So many relatives, a lot of the mess of blood and everything else, but let’s be good neighbors than bad brothers. I believe it’s possible,” she said.
Savchenko said that “it is even more possible if they change leaders.” “Not a single leader to rule the country for life, this is not required. I believe some fresh blood needs to come down, restarted, and the same will be in Russia. In Russia there are people, there is movement. It is difficult, because the pressure there is fierce. But I think that in the future it is possible,” she said.

At the same time a soldier added that “not really” believes that Ukrainians have learned to not vote for buckwheat.” “I won’t say what I want [to be President]. I love to fly. But if need be, I will do what is good for Ukraine,” she continued.
