 "If there are no talks with terrorist leaders, we will never have peace on our Ukrainian land," - Savchenko

Ukraine should hold direct talks with separatist leaders of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions Alexander Zakharchenko and Igor Plotnitsky.

As reported by Censor.NET, Batkivshchyna MP Nadiia Savchenko said it in an interview with The Associated Press.

"If there are no such talks, we will never have peace on our Ukrainian land," she said.

At the same time the MP stressed that the withdrawal of Russian soldiers and the sealing of Ukraine's border with Russia must precede such negotiations.

"We have an open border," she noted. "I was abducted through those holes in the border. I have seen loads of Russian weapons, Russian instructors, Russian mercenaries, Chechens flowing in," Savchenko added.

Earlier, June 7, Nadiia Savchenko said she was ready to hold direct talks with the leaders of the "LPR" and "DPR", bypassing the Minsk process.
