KIEV, May 7. /TASS/. Verkhovna Rada member Nadezhda Savchenko stated that she feared for her life.
"The authorities are spying on me and my party members <...>. I check my car every time to see whether a bomb was planted there," she said on Tuesday after a court session on her case, TASS reported.
The Brovarsky City District Court of the Kiev Region rescheduled a hearing on Savchenko’s case for May 31 due to the absence of two lawyers. Head of the Officer Corps Vladimir Ruban is charged under this case together with Savchenko. The prosecutors will request that Savchenko and Ruban be arrested for two months at the next session, a prosecutor said.
The prosecutors blame them for plotting a terror attack in the parliament’s session room and in government quarters. Officers from the Ukrainian Security Service detained Ruban on March 8, 2018, when he was crossing the line of contact in Donbass. On March 22, 2018, the Verkhovna Rada stripped Savchenko of her parliamentary immunity and issued an arrest warrant for her, after which she was taken into custody.
The Brovarsky City District Court of the Kiev Region released Savchenko and Ruban, as their arrest term had expired, in the early hours of April 16
