The consideration of the case of Ukraine’s MP Nadiya Savchenko, earlier illegally imprisoned by Russia, and the former leader of Officer Corps Centre Volodymyr Ruban would be moved to Kyiv. Solomeiasky District Court of Kyiv will consider the case, as Radio Liberty reported.
Ukraine’s Supreme Court has made this decision.
Earlier, Chernihiv District Court had to consider this case, which was moved there from Sloviansk (Donbas).
Yuriy Lutsenko, Prosecutor General, claimed that he had proof that Savchenko planned an armed coup d'état, which would have led to mass civilian casualties. In particular, according to the information of the Prosecutor General's Office, she planned to shell Kyiv with a grenade launcher. Furthermore, together with earlier detained Volodymyr Ruban she is suspected of an organization of assassination of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.
As we reported earlier, Savchenko took 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.
December 13, Kyiv Court postponed the consideration of Savchenko’s case due to her bad state of health. Savchenko stated that she had partial loss of hearing and vision.
