As reported by a correspondent for Censor.NET, this is evidenced by the footage Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko demonstrated to the members of the Verkhovna Rada on Thursday as a ground to strip Savchenko of immunity and arrest her.
According to the Prosecutor General’s Office, after entering the government-controlled territory, MP Savchenko and Volodymyr Ruban met with Ukrainian army officers Kot and Berezen, who cooperated with the investigation, in an apartment in Bakhmut on Nov. 23, 2017. During the conversation, the voice, which the investigators believe belongs to Savchenko, elaborates on the visit to the occupied territory of the Donetsk region.
Savchenko was presumably talking about the request of Russian mercenaries’ chieftain, leader of the so-called "Donetsk People’s Republic" Alexander Zakharchenko to "personally hand Turchynov over to them."
"There is a request to personally hand Turchynov over to them. I said that the request will be ... It's easier for us to deal with him on our own. Well, it was a personal request of Zakharchenko [for him to be able to get revenge] for the war in the Donbas and everything else," said the voice the investigators believed belonged to Savchenko.
On March 22, the law enforcers served Savchenko with charge papers and detained her inside the building of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine in the presence of journalists after the parliament stripped her of immunity and sanctioned her detention and arrest.
On March 21, the members of the Committee on Rules of Parliamentary Procedure and Support to Work of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine unanimously upheld motions to detain, arrest, and bring to criminal responsibility non-affiliated MP Savchenko which were subsequently supported by the parliament's majority.
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.
