"The period in Ukraine is very difficult and left to go to the level where there is a return to the totalitarian past, that we are moving in a democratic direction, not only in words but also in deed. We stayed just this one step. But last fight - the hardest, and I hope that the world will not leave us in this fight and help us make this a decisive and necessary step. I hope that very soon Ukraine will be a worthy partner for the European Union and the whole civilized democratic world ", - said Savchenko.

It also urged the EU not to weaken sanctions against Russia for the restoration of the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

"The EU should understand and confirm the value that human life above money and business interests. France was once one of the signers of the Budapest memorandum on non-aggression in Ukraine. However, Russia was also a signatory and defender of Ukraine when she freed from nuclear weapons. Russia has shown that it is the guarantor. But I believe that Europe is above it. So the positive things that began to do "Norman Quartet" Europe must bring to an end. Sanctions can not take off until the bear is not learned his lesson, "- said Nadezhda Savchenko.
