“The lion’s share of the conversation (with the leaders of “Norman Quartet” – ed.) was devoted to unlocking the activities of the Special monitoring mission of the OSCE, negotiations on the establishment of the armed police of the OSCE mission, which should stand on the boundary line. I also raised the issue regarding the protection of the Crimean Tatars after the judgment of Russia banning of the Mejlis and after the torture that apply to Crimean Tatars, and informed about the agreement on Savchenko. This issue was solved a little earlier”, – said Poroshenko.

According to the President, finally in Savchenko’s release and her return to Ukraine, he believed, only knowing that a plane with a Ukrainian on Board landed at the airport “Borispol”.

“I believe that, when the operations duty officer of the SBU I was told that the plane with Nadia touched the ground and Svyatoslav (press Secretary of the President Svyatoslav Tsegolko, – ed.) after 5-6 minutes, called me. The second time I spoke with Hope and welcomed her to the Ukrainian land”, – said Poroshenko.
