Brovarsky District Court of Kyiv ruled to release Volodymyr Ruban and Ukrainian MP Nadiya Savchenko, as nv.ua reported.

“The court made this decision as the period of the pre-trial detention has expired and the new one was not set,” the message reads.

Savchenko stated that she would not violate the regulations and “she would not escape from the country, as the prosecutors guaranteed.”

Earlier, Darnytsia District Court of Kyiv satisfied the recusal of the panel on April 10 and now the case of Nadia Savchenko and Volodymyr Ruban would be sent to Kyiv Appeal Court.

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.
