“Yesterday, Nadia Viktorivna told the journalists that she will begin working at the session hall of the Verkhovna Rada at the nearest plenary week as the current MP. Last year, this work was quite hampered, especially during the last few months, when she was taken to Chernihiv remand center, then to Lukyanivska remand center. We often called for the recusal due to these court sessions; we had no possibility to visit her as well as her assistants. In other words, she will have such a possibility now. Concerning the political activity, if there is a political force, which declared particular things two years ago, provided the program to the society, if Nadia Viktorivna was chosen as the candidate for the presidency by this force, unfortunately, we could not register her due to all these obstacles imposed by the current system. If all these steps were made, it means that we will participate in the parliamentary elections in autumn. And we expect for the good result,” she stated.
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.
On April 16, 2019, Brovarsky District Court ruled to release Volodymyr Ruban and Ukrainian MP Nadiya Savchenko.
Savchenko will return to work on April 23 as the plenary session begins at the Verkhovna Rada.
