The head of the Investigative Department of Russia Alexander Bastrykin has denied the statement about the fact that former Ukrainian pilot Nadezhda Savchenko, who was standing trial on charges of complicity In violent deprivation of life 2 Russian correspondents near the city of Lugansk, as if he was kidnapped And taken to the Russian Federation.
"This statement is untrue ", – Bastrykin said in the interview to " Rossiyskaya Gazeta ". According to the head of the UK, 23 June Savchenko illegally crossed the state border of Russia in the area of the checkpoint Donetsk-North without documents proving her identity. She did It in the flow of immigrants to stay hidden." We found that after crossing the border at the passing cars Savchenko tried to reach the nearest settlements, where there is railway or bus station. However, the car in which she was followed, was stopped by employees of traffic police of the Voronezh region for verification. Because documents when Savchenko was not, she was detained Until the establishment of identity ", – he said. According to the investigation data, after crossing the border of Russia Savchenko another 3 days besprepjatstvenno moved across the Voronezh region And lived in one of the hotels where without a passport, in consultation with police officers, settled temporarily paperwork, identification, And obtaining refugee status Cases, such temporary resettlement of immigrants without documents related to Ukraine many regions. And This is understandable: can't leave these people Until after all of the formalities on the street. Realizing that freely to stay in the territory of the Russian Federation without documents she will not have the opportunity, Savchenko on the same day, i.e. on June 26, was the territorial division of the FMS of Russia And has filed a message with the request to issue Her with a certificate confirming the identity. This message, written Savchenko his own, is at the disposal of the investigation. In it she also indicated that at the time residing in the said hotel. Only on the fourth day, i.e. 30 June, drew the attention of the head Ledcom, after receiving the Russian police data included crimes against our Residents, Savchenko was detained in the form of a suspect. However, all These 3 days, Until the moment of detention it besprepjatstvenno moved to the place of stay in the Russian territory, This is also confirmed by the collected evidence, as well as among them the testimony of witnesses And documents.
"So the facts convincingly demonstrate about the fact that Savchenko voluntarily arrived in the Russian Federation ", – summed up Bastrykin. Answering the question of why Savchenko needed to go to the Russian Federation, Bastrykin said that given the fact that Savchenko had the experience And skills of sabotage And intelligence activities, it may be assumed that it is in Russia could be connected with the Commission of any future unlawful acts." But This, of course, is only conjecture. About the fact that in Russia she suspected of serious crimes, Savchenko did not know, for this reason, most likely, believed that, as reported, before the Russian legislation "clean" And can besprepjatstvenno to be here And act without changing their setup data ", – he finished. Donetsk city court of Rostov region appointed on fifteen September, the new preliminary hearing in the case Ukrainka Hope Savchenko, accused of belonging to the death of Russian correspondents in the Donbass. Savchenko was transferred from the Moscow detention facility in Rostov region in mid-July. Prior to that, she contacted the state office of public Prosecutor of Russia with the request to postpone the consideration of her case from Donetsk, Rostov region. In her vision, the Russian authorities not able to provide her safety And the safety of the other participants in the process in a place like Donetsk, which, in its expressions, is a " transit point Pro-Russian terrorists ".
