The Ukrainian Parliament lifted the parliamentary immunity from scandalous MP Nadiya Savchenko. Thus, Prosecutor General’s office has been authorized to arrest her, as the official is charged with preparing a terrorist act in the Ukrainian Parliament.

On Thursday, Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko showed the video that proved that Savchenko assisted those who brought weapons from non-controlled areas of Donbas to the government-held territory of Ukraine. Lutsenko added that Savchenko is suspected of involvement in the attempt of coup d’état; she coordinated her actions with Russian officers, using assistance of rogue Ukrainian military men.

According to Prosecutor General, Savchenko thought they were recruited and stood with her, while they actually recorded all conversations with her. The investigation team believes this is the evidence of planning terrorist acts in the Ukrainian Parliament.
