KIEV, December 12./TASS/. Deputies from Batkivshchyna political party in the Ukrainian parliament intend to shortly consider expelling Nadezhda Savchenko from the faction, party leader Yulia Tymoshenko said on Monday.
"Savchenko is free to plan her life and her political career the way she sees proper. She has nothing in common with Batkivshchyna Party," said Timoshenko, Ukraine’s former prime minister. "We have made the decision to convene a faction meeting, invite Nadezhda Savchenko and discuss all these things with her and make a decision," she said.
Tymoshenko said Savchenko is not coordinating her moves with colleagues in the faction as she has her own political project.
A Russian court found Savchenko, a former Ukrainian pilot, guilty of involvement in the killing of Russian TV reporters Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin, and of illegally crossing the Russian border.
On March 22, the court in Donetsk, a town in Russia’s southern Rostov region, sentenced her to 22 years in a general penal colony.
At the request of Kornelyuk and Voloshin’s relatives, President Putin pardoned her on May 25. A jet took her to Kiev shortly after.
Savchenko is a deputy of the Verkhovna Rada who was elected on a party ticket of Yulia Tymoshenko’s Batkivshchyna party.
