Ukrainian Member of Parliament Nadiia Savchenko has applied to the Verkhovna Rada procedural committee, asking to consider the issue of stripping her of parliamentary immunity and put a corresponding decision to the vote in parliament.

"[It is] the third anniversary of the Maidan. It is time for politicians to keep their promises without [waiting for] a third Maidan! Fulfilling the first promise: I'm giving up parliamentary immunity," Savchenko wrote on Facebook, adding a photo of her application.

She called on all lawmakers, the president and judges to follow her example.
