The Main Investigation Department of the SBU Security Service of Ukraine on April 11 decided to conduct the forensic psychological test with the use of a polygraph under criminal proceedings on suspicion of former hostage swap negotiator Volodymyr Ruban and MP Savchenko of preparing for terrorist attacks and committing a coup. Kyiv's Scientific Research Institute of Forensic Expertise under Ukraine's Justice Ministry was hired to conduct the examination.

"According to the test results, the commission of experts has provided clear-cut conclusions about Savchenko's positive psycho-physiological reactions, which indicate that Savchenko discussed plans for the forcible overthrow of the constitutional system, participated in illegal actions to overthrow the constitutional system and was personally plotting the forcible overthrow of the constitutional system," the report says.

Savchenko discussed plans for the murder of top officials with her accomplices, in particular, she personally distributed roles in assassinations," the SBU said.
