Speaking about what she did in this post, she noted that “legalized would the army that is really effective and dismissed all of that gets the money, the development of corruption, and harms all who are at the forefront”.
“We have a captain — is the level of command of the brigade, not even the Colonel. The captain can cope with the problem, there have been examples when was the capture of Kramatorsk airfield, one group was led by a Colonel, another a major and the third captain. Only the captain has brought his group,” — said Savchenko, adding: “now the captain is the level of Colonel, the commander of the brigade, division, battalion. Colonel, brigade commander — level staff. The rest of the staff is just the battalions of colonels and generals is that we have very overstaffed. It all just slows down everything that was done.”
In addition, Savchenko, expressed the opinion that the amendments to the Constitution of Ukraine on Donbass should be conducted in the near future, however now it is impossible. “No, it doesn’t have to delay for a few years. It should be done soon, but not today and not tomorrow. I very much hope that it will be possible in six months. And so effectively, finally and long,” she said.
Savchenko was sentenced to 22 years in prison for the murder of journalists VGTRK in the Donbass. At the end of may, however, she was pardoned by President Vladimir Putin, as it became known after the plane brought her from Rostov-on-don to Kiev. This time to Moscow from Ukraine took off Russians Alexander Alexandrov and Evgeny Erofeev, which Kiev called “GRU soldiers”, and Moscow — the former military and in Ukraine, which is condemned for participating in the fighting in the Donbass. They, in turn, was pardoned by Petro Poroshenko.
After a pardon and returning home Savchenko expressed its readiness to become President of Ukraine. Answering the question, what will she do if going to be the Ukrainian leader, she said: “the Ukrainians, if you need me to be President” I shall be President.” “But I don’t quite yet believe that we people have learned to not vote for buckwheat,” — said Savchenko. “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 added.
Speaking about the Minsk agreement and the elections in the Donbass, she noted that the agreements needed as allow you to release the prisoners. And elections, in its opinion, cannot be carried out, so as to solve the problems in the country are Ukrainians, and this is currently impossible due to the fact that Kiev is not in control of the country’s borders.
