Shevchenkivsky District Court of Kyiv has rescheduled the court session in case of MP Nadia Savchenko due to her poor well-being for December 17 as correspondent of 112 Ukraine reported.

“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.

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.
