Savchenko’s defense intends to appeal against the decision of Shevchenkivskyi District Court to retain people’s deputy in custody on Monday. Victor Chevguz, Savchenko’s lawyer, said it on air of 112 Ukraine.

“We will definitely prepare appeal petitions,” he said.

Chevguz noted that Savchenko will be kept in SBU’s detention center.  

Earlier, Shevchenkivskyi District Court decided on the preventive measures for Savchenko, which is custody for two months till May 20, 2018 without a right for a bail.

Besides, the Court decided that the detention on March 22 was illegal.

On March 22,  the Ukrainian parliament lifted the immunity of Nadiya Savchenko. She was detained right after this in the building of the Verkhovna Rada.

Later Ukraine's Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko signed the notice of suspicion of Savchenko under charges with preparing a terrorist act and the attempt of coup d'etat. 

On March 15,  Lutsenko claimed during his speech at the parliament that Savchenko personally planned, recruited and ordered how to hold the terrorist attack in the Verkhovna Rada, destroying two lodges, governmental and post, by the combat grenades, bringing down the dome of the Verkhovna Rada by the mortar launchers and killing the survived with the assault rifles.

Also, it was reported that non-affiliated MP Nadia Savchenko and Volodymyr Ruban, the Head of 'Officer Corps' planned to attack the cortege of the President of Ukraine with the large caliber sniper rifle. 

In her turn, Savchenko claimed that she planned only a political provocation.
