“The court was postponed as the statement of Nadia Savchenko was received by the court that she cannot be physically present at the court session as she feels bad due to the hunger strike. The judge said that it is impossible to consider the extension of the restrictive measure without Nadia Savchenko according to the procedure so he offered the side of the prosecution to postpone the session,” the journalist said.
Besides, the correspondent talked with Nadia's sister, Vira Savchenko. She assures that Nadia feels not really good. Vira did not have the possibility to see her recently but she would come to sister to know how the doctors take care of her.
The restrictive measure for Nadia Savchenko will expire on December 24.
Earlier MP Nadia Savchenko reported that she would stop the dry hunger strike on December 13.
Reportedly, Savchenko underwent a polygraph testing. The Security Service of Ukraine claimed that the psychological forensic examination with the use of the polygraph of MP Nadiya Savchenko confirmed her intentions of committing the coup d'état, particularly the commitment of the terrorist act in the governmental quarter and the Ukrainian Parliament.
Shevchenkivsky District Court decided on preventive measures for Nadiya Savchenko – detention on custody for two months till May 20, 2018, without a right for bailment. During her speech, she declared a hunger strike. She also noted that she wasn’t going to escape Ukraine. Later, Appeal Court enhanced Savchenko’s detention until July 14.
Yuriy Lutsenko, Prosecutor General, claimed that he has proof that Savchenko planned an armed coup d'état, which would have brought to mass civilian casualties. In particular, according to the information of Prosecutor General's office, she planned to shell Kyiv with a grenade launcher. Furthermore, she together with early detained Volodymyr Ruban are suspected of an organization of assassination of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.
