Reducing bail

Also, the judges partially granted the defenders’ request to change the preventive measure and instead of the previously established 65 million UAH bail, Nasirov can now post 55 million UAH.

If these funds are deposited, Nasirov will be forced to adhere to a number of obligations, in particular, surrender his passport and wear an electronic bracelet.

Nasirov's defense asked for bail to be set at UAH 22 million. Nasirov's wife had previously deposited these funds into the VAKS deposit account.

According to the lawyers, this is the maximum possible amount that the family can contribute as collateral, although before this the defense also said so about the 10 million UAH contributed by the wife .

In addition, the defense noted that half of the prosecution’s evidence in the case had already been examined, so the risks were significantly reduced.

According to Nasirov and his defenders, he seems to have health problems, and the pre-trial detention center cannot provide the appropriate level of medical care. The defense also noted that it is impossible to ensure Nasirov’s safety in the pre-trial detention center during shelling, because there is no shelter there.

In general, Nasirov has been in custody for a year and a half. In October 2022, he was taken into custody with bail of UAH 523 million. Since then, the preventive measure has been continued several times, but the bail has already been reduced almost tenfold.
