A polygraph test has confirmed that Ukrainian MP Nadiya Savchenko was plotting terrorist attacks in Kyiv's government quarter and in the parliament building, according to the website of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU).

The SBU said that based on the results of the test, an expert commission arrived at unambiguous conclusion that Savchenko displayed positive psychophysiological reactions, which in particular mean that she was discussing plans for a violent overthrow of constitutional order, participated in illegal actions aimed at overthrowing the constitutional system and was personally preparing a violent overthrow of the constitutional order.

The test showed that Savchenko was involved in preparing an armed seizure of power. For this, she was looking for and transporting weapons. She discussed plans for a violent overthrow of the constitutional system and the seizure of state power with the head of Officers Corps NGO Volodymyr Ruban and the leadership of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic.

In particular, Savchenko and her accomplices discussed plans for the assassination of the country's leadership. In particular, she personally assigned roles in assassination attempts.

In addition, she developed a detailed plan for the assassination of the country's leadership and discussed with her accomplices who should do what during the assassination attempt.

At the same time, the experts did not find any positive psychophysiological reactions to the questions asked by the defence: whether Savchenko wanted to change power in Ukraine in a constitutional way, whether she thinks that the president, MPs, the prime minister, the secretary of the National Security and Defence Council, members The Cabinet of Ministers, the leaders of political parties are engaged in criminal activities.

It is also noted that due to Savchenko's conscious resistance to the polygraph test, the expert commission failed to ask all the prepared questions and the test was aborted.

The test was carried out by the Kyiv Forensic Research Institute.

MP Nadiya Savchenko was stripped of immunity from prosecution on 22 March. The next day she was declared a suspect and detained on charges of plotting a violent seizure of power and terrorist acts.
