Puitin’s confidant Odnovol placed in pretrial custody on treason charges

The Kherson city court granted the petition of the Prosecutor's Office of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and placed Olena Odnovol, who campaigned for Putin’s candidacy at unlawful election in Crimea, in pretrial detention until June 21, 2018 without bail option.

Spokesperson for the Prosecutor's Office of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, Tetiana Tykhonchyk told Censor.NET.

Prosecutors requested the court to remand Odnovol in pretrial custody for two months without the right to be bailed out.

Detainee’s lawyer Ihor Mokyn, however, says the evidence collected by investigators is insufficient for serving her with charge papers or placing her in custody.

As reported, Ukrainian border guards detained Vladimir Putin's ‘confidant’ at Crimea elections while she was crossing the de-facto administrative border with the occupied Crimea on April 23. Acting in the interests of the Russian Federation and the All-Russian non-governmental organization Volunteers of Victory, the woman set up and carried out the illegal collection of signatures across the peninsula in support of Putin's nomination for presidency. She was also repeatedly spotted in the crowd during events with Putin's participation.

Odnovol was served with charge papers on April 24.
