Social media users are calling to rescue Ukrainian officer Nadiya Savchenko, who has been taken hostage by Donbas terrorists.

For this all those impartial are being asked to post the photograph of the aviator, who has already been dubbed “G.I. Jane,” or publicly demonstrate support. “All you have to do is post her photo with the hashtag #SaveOurGirl on social networks or publicly show your support,” Twitter users write.

Earlier, a video has been shared on the web in which the hostage is being questioned by terrorists. Despite the accusatory tone of the questions and her essential helplessness, the pilot is holding up with dignity.

Nadiya survived Iraq and is a merited professional in the Ukrainian army with over 10 years’ experience. During the questioning it was discovered that the woman had been captured during an attempt to rescue wounded Ukrainian soldiers: “I was going after our wounded. Two of our armoured carriers were shot in the village of Metalist and I came for the wounded.”

Nadiya Savchenko has no illusions as to the intentions of the criminals. When a bandit (as is concluded from the context – of Russian nationality) asked her the question: “If you are freed, will you return here with weapons?”, she answered: “I will not be freed, I will be killed. You Russian government will kill me on accusations that they ascribe.”

We remind you that Putin’s propaganda, in its usual manner, called Nadiya – senior lieutenant, navigator-operator of a Ukrainian Armed Forces helicopter, “a sniper involved in the murder of Russian journalists.”

The group “InfoResist” shared a video report of Military TV of Ukraine about the hero dated back in 2011.
