18:48, 15 March 2018

MP Nadia Savchenko planned the terrorist attack in the session hall of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. Yury Lutsenko, the Prosecutor General of Ukraine claimed this during the morning plenary session of the parliament.

‘The investigation has the irrefutable proof that Nadia Savchenko personally planned, recruited and ordered how to hold the terrorist attack there, in this hall, destroying two lodges, using hand grenades, a mortar and assault rifles’, Lutsenko said.

He added he’d ask the Parliament to let his office bring Savchenko to responsibility. Later on Thursday, the Ukrainian MP and former Air Force pilot was excluded from the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine.
