As reported by a parliamentary correspondent for Censor.NET, People’s Front Head Maksym Burbak told journalists on the sidelines of the parliament.
"We have considered this issue (to waive Savchenko’s immunity - Ed.). There is a clear position to support stripping her of immunity. The People’s Front faction has a clear stance – we Okayed the amendments to the Constitution regarding stripping the entire deputy corps of immunity in the first reading. ... There is no need to hide behind the parliamentary immunity," Burbak said.
"I am convinced that Nadia Savchenko is a recruited agent. I clearly see that all the messages she voices at her press conferences are the messages that are transmitted from the Kremlin through Putin’s henchman Medvedchuk," the lawmaker said.
On March 15, Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko requested the Verkhovna Rada to strip MP Savchenko of immunity, detain and arrest her. The lawmaker is suspected of allegedly plotting an armed coup through acts of terrorism.
On March 12, Savchenko was summoned for questioning to the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) due to an investigation in criminal proceedings against Volodymyr Ruban.
On March 8, Ruban was detained at a checkpoint in the Donbas with a batch of weapons. He was delivering these weapons from the occupied territory to the government-controlled part of the Donbas.
Ruban is suspected of plotting armed attacks on senior government officials, preparing a terrorist act with the use of weapons and explosives posing a threat to life and limb of people.
