“The lawyers of one of the suspects, it is about Nataliya Ovcharenko, were not present at the session, as they are involved in other cases. Therefore the Court was asked to postpone this case for so long, so that they have a few days to come to the preparatory session. That is why the session was postponed to May 31 at 11:00,” she said.
