Non-factional MP Nadiia Savchenko, who has been charged with plotting a terrorist act and a coup and who has been released from custody on Monday, April 15, has plans to return to her work in the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament.

"The event we have been waiting for over a year," her lawyer Oleksandr Shadrin told Hromadske.

"Savchenko plans to return to work in the Verkhovna Rada, I hope we will see her at the next meetings," the lawyer added.

According to him, Savchenko's release from custody will have a positive impact on the consideration of the case, because now the defense will not have to be distracted by preventive measures and detention, and "we will focus on the consideration of the case on the merits."

Savchenko entered the Verkhovna Rada as a member of the Batkivschyna party, now she is an independent deputy.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the court released from custody MP Nadiia Savchenko as the term of her arrest expired on April 16 without being duly extended on time.
