Chief military prosecutor says Savchenko was indeed plotting attack

Weapons seized from former Ukrainian military pilot and lawmaker Nadia Savchenko were in working order and could have been used in an attack on top officials she was alleged to have been plotting, Chief Military Prosecutor Anatoliy Matios told Novoye Vremya Radio on May 11.

Savchenko is accused of plotting the attack along with Volodymyr Ruban, a former organizer of prisoner exchanges with Russian-led forces in the Donbas, and the Russian occupation authorities in eastern Ukraine. Prosecutors claim the group plotted to violently overthrow the Ukrainian government and assassinate President Petro Poroshenko.
