“We should not forget that she was found guilty of murder,” – said the newspaper VIEW former Vice Prime Minister of DND Andrey Purgin, commenting on the arrival of Nadezhda Savchenko in the Republic. However, Savchenko is now in danger of falling under trial not in Russia, and the Ukraine. While she stayed in Donetsk, in Kiev, she was accused of preparing an armed uprising against Petro Poroshenko.
The Ministry of state security of DNR on Friday confirmed the arrival of the Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Hope Savchenko and Director of the Ukrainian center for release of prisoners “Officer corps” Vladimir Ruban. “Ruban Savchenko came to visit Ukrainian prisoners of war”, – reports “Donetsk news Agency”.
“In contrast to the Ukrainian “dobrobatov”, DNR authorities do treat the prisoners humanely enough”
The Ministry of defence DND said that “Savchenko along with Vladimir Ruban arrived in Makiyivka colony”. It is probably talking about the Western correctional colony No. 97, located between Makeyevka and Donetsk. Here, according to the Ukrainian side, contains 37 of the 109 prisoners. That’s the number of fighters APU is the militia, according to the adviser of the head of the security Service of Ukraine (SBU) Yuriy Tandit. By the way I notice that IR No. 97 was founded in 1947 as a camp for German prisoners of war.
The SBU experienced a “perplexing”
The SBU has promised to “hold a conversation” with Savchenko on the subject of her visit to Donetsk. “This is not the first action that Ms. Savchenko is doing together with Ruban”, – quotes “Interfax” the head of the office of the SBU Alexander Tkachuk. The representative of “BEZPEKA” stressed that Savchenko is not obliged to inform about his movements as the people’s Deputy, “we need to remember how Savchenko fell captive, and then in the Russian Federation”. “And now a visit to the occupied territories is causing some confusion” – admitted Tkachuk.
Two days before his visit Savchenko published in a Facebook message: “For my time in Parliament I have received over a thousand complaints from relatives of prisoners, missing and dead soldiers, to protect Ukraine from the enemy.” In support of this Savchenko applied to the message multiple scans of requests to help with the release from captivity of fighters APU. “Citizens of Ukraine who are asking for help for their relatives, give me the right to act,” – wrote about this Savchenko.
We will remind, in January Savchenko has published the lists of prisoners from both sides, offering the exchange of in three stages. The first step is to exchange all of the confirmed parties of prisoners: 42 Ukrainian strongman 256 militia 44 Ukrainian prisoners in the Crimea, 102 Russian citizens detained in Ukraine. The newspaper VIEW detailed analysis of “the Savchenko list”, find in it many inaccuracies.
“To take up arms and to lose this power”
In that moment, when Savchenko arrived in Donetsk, her colleagues in the Parliament held in Kiev plenary session. As by coincidence, about an hour before it became known about the visit, the Deputy from Pro-presidential Bloc Petro Poroshenko Tatiana Rychkova called on the Prosecutor General of Ukraine and the SBU to investigate the actions Savchenko during a recent visit to the Ukrainian military – the Nikolaev paratroopers – in the “zone ATO”.
“This week the people’s darling Nadezhda Savchenko was in the district of Donetsk airport, where he met with the servicemen of the 80th separate airborne brigade and the 79th and incited them to leave their position to come here to overthrow the criminal government, take up arms and come to lose this power”, – from the rostrum of Parliament told Rychkova. The Deputy asked to consider my statement to a parliamentary question, adding that says, “on behalf of servicemen of Air forces of Ukraine.”
The SBU has promised to check the statement Rychkova, said the chief of staff of the head of the SBU Oleksandr Tkachuk. Moreover, he explained, the head of the security service of Ukraine Vasily Gritsak has already instructed to interview the Ukrainian security forces, with whom frontline spoke Savchenko.
Without waiting for the decisions of suppliers from the SBU, the adviser to the interior Minister Zoryan shkiryak in the Facebook immediately demanded to be brought against Savchenko criminal case under article 109 of the Criminal code (actions aimed at violent change or overthrow of the constitutional order or the seizure of state power).
Seems Savchenko is not only not afraid of such threats, but if she provokes the power structures of Ukraine to an open conflict.
“To talk about the world”
Back in July of last year, Savchenko suggested that the heads LNR and DND Igor Carpenter and Alexander Zakharchenko “go to “neutral” and to talk… if we want to talk about peace.” In October, she even claimed to have visited “occupied territories”, but these allegations were denied by the authorities of the DNI and LC. Anyway, the Deputy had to testify in the SBU.
The first meeting with Savchenko Zakharchenko and Carpenter was held in December in Minsk. In January Zakharchenko has promised to ensure the safety of Savchenko in the case of her visit to the Republic.
The founder of the movement “Donetsk Republic”, former Deputy Prime Minister of the DNI and the ex-Chairman of the national Council of the Republic Andrei Purgin considers a step in the wrong admission of the Ukrainian Deputy to the DNI. “We should not forget that Hope Savchenko including was recognized by Russian court as a guilty of murder”, – Purgin said in comments the newspaper VIEW.
Recall that Savchenko was recognized in Russia as guilty of the murder in the Donbass journalists VGTRK Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin and illegal border crossing. March 22 of last year the Donetsk town court of the Rostov region sentenced her to 22 years in a General regime colony. On may 25 President Vladimir Putin at the request of the relatives of the dead journalists signed a decree to pardon Savchenko, after which she was taken to Kiev. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has awarded her the title of Hero of Ukraine.
“Formally, legally and free, but no one has repealed the verdict on her guilt. Pardon Savchenko does not give reason to treat her like a normal person”, – believes the head of state.
“Donetsk at this moment again shell”
Donetsk political analyst Roman Manekin noticed that, in General, endorses the “on Ms. Savchenko Donetsk “zones” and locations of prisoners of war”.
“I don’t know the position of the authorities of the DNI on the subject. Because the weekend and because the Donetsk at this moment, again fire. However, if to speak in fact, any inspection of places of detention of prisoners or detainees, from my point of view, to the benefit of business”, – said the Manekin in conversation with the newspaper LOOK.
The source added that representatives of the OSCE mission and the UN would do well to visit places of detention, and on both sides of the front line.
In contrast to the Ukrainian “dobrobatov” (the volunteer battalions), “DNI authorities treat prisoners humanely enough,” said Manekin. “In any case, the exchanges that took place, the authorities of the DNI (the same Commissioner for human rights in DND Daria Morozova) was transferred to the Ukrainian party prisoners alive, well-fed and healthy, while the representatives of Ukraine every time tried to give soldiers for civilians, which is just what is called enough on the street, – said the Manekin. – And the Ukrainian side handed of people like this that… well, often they were chunks of bloody meat.”
I would like, however, to see oncoming traffic, “for example an inspection visit Daria Morozova on Ukrainian detention facilities,” he added. “I wonder how would such a proposal responded to Mr. Poroshenko?” – asks the rhetorical question Manekin.
