MOSCOW, February 4. /TASS/. The speaker of Russia’s upper house of parliament, Federation Council, Valentina Matviyenko, has welcomed Wednesday’s decision to release from custody Svetlana Davydova, a resident of the city of Vyazma, the Smolensk Region, in exchange for her written promise not to leave town.
"She was released. There was a court ruling to this effect. I believe that the decision was absolutely fair and legally correct. It was humane as well. And, of course, to my mind it was very timely," Matviyenko told the media.
At the same time Matviyenko refrained from any comments on the merits.
"Any statements on that theme may be interpreted as pressure on the investigators and on the court," she explained. "I believe that everybody should take a deep breath now. I do believe that there will be a fair, correct and legal ruling."
According to mass media, Davydova, a mother of several children, last April told the Ukrainian embassy that the barracks of a garnison near her home had suddenly gone vacant. The woman speculated that the troops might have left for Donetsk. She was remanded in custody at the investigator’s request. Her lawyer, Ivan Pavlov said on his page in a social network on February 2 that his client had been set free on the condition she would not leave her hometown.
