Savchenko says she may become president if Ukrainians wish so

“Let’s put it this way: Ukrainians, if you need me to be president, well, I will be president. I just do not really believe that our people have learned to vote [consciously], not for buckwheat [buckwheat was used to bribe voters],” Savchenko said during her first big press сonference when asked about her readiness to become president, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to UNIAN.

According to Nadiya Savchenko, she cannot say that she would wish to become president because she would rather prefer piloting planes.

“But if it is necessary, I’ll do my best. I’ll go this way. And I will work with dedication,” Savchenko said.

It should be recalled that Nadiya was swapped for the Russian GRU officers and arrived in Kyiv onboard of the presidential airplane yesterday.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko awarded Gold Star of Hero of Ukraine to Nadiya Savchenko on her return from the Russian prison.
