Shadrin also said that Savchenko's defense team would file an appeal and would also apply to the European Court of Human Rights.

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

Savchenko is charged with committing actions aimed at the violent overthrow of the constitutional order and seizure of state power, encroachment on the life of a state or public figure, preparation for a terrorist attack, assistance to a terrorist organization and illicit handling of weapons, ammunition and explosives.

On March 23, the Shevchenkivsky District Court in Kyiv selected the measure of restraint for Savchenko in the form of holding her in custody until May 20 without the right to post bail. On May 15, it extended the arrest for two more months, until July 13.
