Since her return in Ukraine, Nadiya Savchenko has given many interviews to both Ukrainian and international media. Yet she did not give meaningful speeches, with enough facts, and we could not apply VoxCheck to her. She mostly focused on expressing her attitude to various events.

Seven proved to be mistaken or manipulative and only three were correct.
