The self-proclaimed head of the Donetsk national Republic (DND) Alexander Zakharchenko said that his words that the Ukrainian servicewoman Nadiya Savchenko “slap” on arrival in the Donbass, were a joke, reports “RIA Novosti”.
“I was joking about the fact that if she heroically be right on our position, we do it “slap” to shame was not. Still we get charged, so no wonder. Given the fact that all the Ukrainian media have interpreted my words as a desire to eliminate Savchenko, that is heard only that it was beneficial to hear. Next time I will warn you: “especially for Ukrainian media — it will be a joke”, — said Zakharchenko.
However, he noted that Savchenko if she will arrive in the combat zone in the Donbass, can eliminate the Ukrainian security services. “I was trying to convey the information we possess, that the Kiev special services, if Savchenko, as she said, we will go to the line of demarcation, liquidate it”, — said the head of DND.
On the eve on the website “news Donetsk Republic” there was a video interview Zakharchenko, in which he advised Savchenko not to come to the Donbass. “We’ll get honestly, so that later, when we will have to blame that we killed her, not so it was insulting,” said the head of DND.
Itself Savchenko said that the head of DNR threatened her “slap” and said it was ready along with him to laugh at these words.
Convicted by a Russian court and sentenced to 22 years in prison for the murder of journalists VGTRK in the Donbass Savchenko is back in Ukraine on may 25. At the same time in Russia flew a Ukrainian court convicted Aleksandr Erofeev and Evgeny Aleksandrov, which in Kiev called “GRU soldiers.”
