"We will double our efforts to return Nadiia home," this is how the president commented on Hero of Ukraine Nadiia Savchenko's "dry" hunger strike during a meeting with female soldiers.
In addition, according to Tseholko, Poroshenko called the Russian trial a farce that should not continue.
"I've read the statement which Nadiia was to deliver in court. It's about an enduring will of a Ukrainian woman, and not only a Ukrainian woman but an officer of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, who took arms and did what every Ukrainian citizen must do - defend their homeland. Today, her invincibility and her hardness have not only created an image, a symbol but also provided a massive support within our country. Every Ukrainian citizen is proud of each Ukrainian hero. Nadiia Savchenko holds one of the leading positions among these heroes," Poroshenko later wrote on his Facebook page.
