MP Ivan Vynnyk earlier called to exclude Savchenko from the committee due to the fact of the high treason.
Rada’s National Security Committee will address the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine (PGO) with the request to accuse MP Nadiia Savchenko of high treason. This was announced by the committee head MP Serhii Pashynskyi during the meeting on Dec. 18.
“Information we have heard provides the basis for a PGO request so that the agency gives legal evaluation to Vynnyk and SBU representatives’ statements. And we have the laws in force, it should be done within the laws in force,” Pashynskyi said.
During the discussion, MP Andriy Teteruk, who was the rapporteur, stated that the activities of Savchenko harm the interests of the state and are “outside the scope of the legislation”. He recalled that the MP has voluntarily negotiated with terrorist chiefs and published lists of prisoners without the permission of the SBU.
The committee condemned Savchenko’s actions and found them in violation of the law on protection of state secrets.
On 7 December, Savchenko secretly visited Minsk to meet “D/LPR” leaders Zakharchenko and Plotnytskyy. The media suggested that the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) is trying to carry out an exchange of prisoners so that it would look as if Ukraine (represented by Savchenko) directly negotiated with the “legitimate authorities in Donbas” represented by the terrorists.
On 10 January, Savchenko published a list of prisoners despite the position of the SBU.
