‘The judge left to the jury room. Upon having returned, he announced his decision to extend the detention of Volodymyr Ruban for another 60 days. The process is continuing,’ Volodymyr Rybin claimed. 

The defense filed a request for the extension of the arrest for 30 days, arguing that this time is enough for the prosecutor’s office to prepare an indictment and submit it to the court since Ruban’s lawyer was fully acquainted with the case file and there is an official receipt.
