Kyiv Court of Appeal has upheld the ruling of the Shevchenkivsky District Court of Kyiv to select the measure of restraint for Ukrainian MP Nadia Savchenko in the form of detention without the right to post bail. 

Presiding Judge Ihor Palenyk read out a respective ruling on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

"Another part of the ruling by the investigating judge of the Shevchenkivsky District Court of Kyiv of March 23, 2018, which granted the petition of the senior investigator in particularly important cases of the second unit of the first department of the SBU's Main Investigation Department... and applied the measure of restraint for suspect Savchenko in the form of detention within the term of pre-trial investigation until May 20, 2018, has been left unchanged," the judge said.

As reported, on March 22, the Verkhovna Rada gave its consent to the prosecution, detention and arrest of Ukrainian MP Nadia Savchenko.

She is charged with committing acts aimed at overthrowing the constitutional order and seizing state power, encroaching on the life of a state or public figure, preparing for a terrorist attack, assisting a terrorist organization and illicit handling of weapons, ammunition and explosives.

On March 23, the Shevchenkivsky District Court in Kyiv ruled to arrest Savchenko until May 20 without the right to post bail.
