MP Nadia Savchenko, who is under arrest in Chernihiv remand center on suspicion in the attempt of coup d’état, described the conditions of her detention on Facebook.
According to Savchenko, the conditions of her detention in Lykianivska prison were standard; she was not alone in the cell. Then the MP was transferred to Chernihiv remand center, where she sleeps on the usual bed, instead of a bunk bed and her cell is furnished.
“This is not the conditions of the remand center. I have never been detained in such jail. I do not remember that I was not sleeping on bunks or bunk bed but on the bed in the Russian or Ukrainian jails. Here I sleep on the bed because this cell belonged to a woman with a child. Yes, it is a furnished cell; there is bolted iron furniture; besides, simple wooden furniture: bedside table, closet, table, two chairs. There is a shower, separate enclosed bathroom, in other words, the conditions are good,” Sachenko said.
She added that any contacts with the prisoners are forbidden in Chernihiv remand center and they do not meet anyone expects workers of the center.
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 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.
