Neither Savchenko and Samodanova asked for spousal support in the split, according to court docs.
Savchenko said in a statement that his focus was on co-parenting with Samodanova moving forward, the outlet reported.
‘My number one priority right now and always will be my daughters, and making this divorce have as minimal an effect on them as possible,’ Savchenko said. ‘Sometimes relationships don’t work out and this is one of those times.’
He continued: ‘Elena and I agreed to work together to end the marriage with grace and be amicable to one another. As co-parents we commit to protect our girls from our differences, to support their relationships with each other and to continue to put their growth and development first.’

Amid the split, Samodanova accused Savchenko of cheating on her, which he denied.
‘The thing is, I’ve never actually cheated on her,’ he told Entertainment Tonight late last year. ‘Never, ever, ever.’
He added that while ‘it might have looked on TV like’ he was romantically involved with his dance partners, ‘it never was the case.’
Savchenko told the outlet last March that he and Samodanova were ‘on great terms,’ as they were ‘trying to move on’ and ‘co-parenting together.’
Savchenko opened up on the approach in which explained the new circumstances to his eldest daughter.
‘I said to Olivia, “Whatever is happening, it’s life, but you get to live in two different places. You’re gonna have your own room, with, like, anime posters and LED lights, and we’re gonna make it so fun. Then you can go back to your mom, and you’ll have your own room, which is a little different. But it’s fun.”‘
