Savchenko asks Rada to strip her of parliamentary immunity
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.
