On Dec. 7, Savchenko secretly visited Minsk to meet with leaders of terrorist organizations "DPR" and "LPR" Alexander Zakharchenko and Igor Plotnitsky.

The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) said this meeting was not agreed. Savchenko was summoned for questioning to the SBU, where she confirmed the fact of negotiations.

On Dec. 20, Verkhovna Rada Speaker Andrii Parubii announced the expulsion of Nadiia Savchenko from the Batkivshchyna parliamentary faction.

Later on, Savchenko was excluded from Batkivshchyna. However, Yuliia Tymoshenko, the leader, said the party would not initiate Nadiia's resignation as MP because people gave their votes for her during the election.
