The advocates of MP Nadia Savchenko appealed against the decision of Shevchenkivsky Kyiv Court on her arrest. Viktor Chevhuz, the lawyer of Savchenko claimed this as 112 Ukraine reported.

'By number 1627/7 from today, the appeal is registered. In two-three days it will be considered. The main points of the appeal are based on the materials of the case. The first point is that the political violence takes place against Nadia. The second is that the judge must consider the validity of the suspicion that was charged on her during the consideration of the case on the arrest and choice of other restrictive measures. She was served charges on six criminal offenses due to six articles', the advocate reported.

He noted that the judge allowed procedural irregularities during the issuance of the judgment and the decision on the arrest can be treated as ungrounded.
