MOSCOW, March 13. /TASS/. Russian mother of seven Svetlana Davydova formerly accused of treason said on Friday she has no plans of filing a lawsuit against the state after the high-profile case against her has been dropped.
"I believe it would be wrong that tax payers have to pay for the fact that the state opened this case," Davydova told journalists in Moscow.
Davydova, 36, the resident of Vyazma, in western Russia, was freed from Moscow’s Lefortovo pre-trial detention facility in early February after nearly two weeks of arrest.
However, her lawyer Sergey Badamshin said he would seek rehabilitation for Davydova, and the housewife could receive compensation for having been placed in the detention center.
Earlier on Friday, Davydova’s second lawyer Ivan Pavlov wrote on Facebook that charges against the woman had been dropped due to the "absence of crime." "The charges of state treason have been fully removed and the right of rehabilitation was explained to her," he wrote.
According to media reports, Davydova last April told the Ukrainian embassy that the barracks of a garrison near her home in Vyazma, in the Smolensk region, suddenly went vacant. The woman speculated that the troops might have left for Donetsk, in eastern Ukraine.
