In the parliament they showed a video where Savchenko allegedly is discusses preparation for a coup. Recently, Savchenko has spoken out about her knowledge of who led the Maidan, and organised the snipers in the city square. She blamed key Ukrainian politicians, currently in the position of power. While Savchenko is a former killer of the Ukrainian airforce, it can be said that such statements require courage.


“She is charged with articles that provide for an absolutely uncontested measure of restraint in the form of detention,” said the political scientist.
