Savchenko is ready to accuse of attempt of the armed seizure of power. This is reported by sources in the Ukrainian media. Supposedly $ 2 million she was going to get one of the fighting in the Donbas battalions and give him a weapon that from DND and LNR carried Vladimir Ruban, a detainee recently SBU for the preparation of the assassination attempt on President Poroshenko. By the way, the very Hope of the security service has summoned for questioning, but she had gone to Strasbourg at the PACE session.
On the morning of 13 March, the Ukrainian media erupted with sensation: the Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Hope Savchenko fled from justice in Russia. This was stated by Deputy head of the faction “popular front” Andrew Teeruk. According to him, she took refuge in the territory of the “aggressor”, as it was afraid that it will be put on the bench near the head of the “Officer corps” Vladimir Ruban. The latter is accused of plotting the assassination of President Poroshenko, the NSDC Secretary Turchynov, interior Minister Avakov and the ex-Prime Minister Yatsenyuk. In addition, the SBU claim that Ruban surrounded militants were going to break into Parliament to shoot the deputies from machine guns and grenade launchers.
Savchenko has denied his flight to Russia, laid out on the Network multiple photos from Strasbourg, where, in her words, she is on a working visit. However, the Prosecutor’s office of Ukraine did not hide the seriousness of their intentions. As stated by the Minister Yuriy Lutsenko, if Savchenko has really attributed to her courage, she should immediately be on interrogation in SBU. He stressed that the MP is in Strasbourg on their own initiative, and not as part of the official delegation of Ukraine.
The sources of Ukrainian media claim that the Prime suspect in the case of Ruban is Savchenko. Supposedly six months ago, representatives of the Ukrainian intelligence suggested the Deputy of a coup, and she naively agreed. For successful operation the security forces asked Hope to deliver with the territory of the DNI batch of weapons. To that end, she went to Ruban, which is also nothing embarrassed. Besides, according to the source, on the side Savchenko was ready to get up one of the battalions who fought in the ATO zone. Now Ukraine is waiting for the trial of the century over the traitors.
Recall that Ruban was arrested March 8 while trying to take out from the territory of the LC in Ukraine a large consignment of weapons hidden in furniture: cabinets and tables lay light machine guns, grenades, mines and mortars, which are produced only in Lugansk. In Kiev assert that the defendants followed 10 months, the result came to the conclusion that he collaborated with the leadership of the breakaway republics of Donbass and were preparing a series of terrorist acts in Ukraine.
Savchenko has long worked with Ruban on the issue of exchange of prisoners, and in February 2017 together with him visited Donetsk. In response, the SBU has cancelled the authorisation for entry in the DNI and LC, explaining that “sensitive issue” for the exchange of prisoners can only deal with the President.
“Not yet started live broadcast of the trial, I personally thought that all the reports about the detention of Ruban loaded with weapons — it is a fake!” — briefly commented on the “MK” news Nadezhda Savchenko. Ruban claims that the security forces set him up, and “occupied territory,” he stopped to help a friend move from Donetsk to Ukraine. Savchenko wanted to take him on bail, but the court went on sentencing before she got to the meeting.
How will the trial of “traitors”, “MK” has found out from the experts:
Andrew Buzarov, a member of the public Council under the MFA of Ukraine:
Something that Savchenko was brought in as a witness one of the first, suggests that its status in the Ruban may, at any time to change. In particular, if her answers do not like the law enforcement agencies, it may turn into a suspect. No one there is no doubt that the trial Ruban will be long and it may be involved not only experts, but many other public figures with whom he collaborated in the exchange of prisoners in the Donbas. He was almost 4 years worked in this direction, and now all his friends, from military to public figures, fell into the danger zone. I wouldn’t compare the arrest of Ruban with “1937”, but it will be loud. At the same time Ukrainian society will calmly watch his progress. Even when Saakashvili was expelled from the country, no social upheaval has not occurred.
Kirill Molchanov, Deputy head of the Ukrainian Institute of policy analysis and management:
— Poroshenko, showing the society’s internal enemies, is preparing for presidential elections. Lutsenko can say anything, but in court the prosecution will collapse. We are talking about the preparation of analogue of the Soviet “doctors ‘ plot”, but the administration is too weak to follow through. Nobody in Ukraine believes the charges against Ruban charges. The more people laugh at the accusations of an attempted coup. The vast majority of ordinary Ukrainians sympathize with him and regret that the plan, if such it was, failed.
Most likely, Ruban became a victim of dismantlings of the security forces in the Donbass. Soon in the region of the fiddle will play the SBU and the General staff. In the redistribution of spheres of influence, the security Service is trying to prove its usefulness and to this end planted Ruban shipment of smuggled arms. In a further situation to their advantage advantage Poroshenko.
