Trial on Ukrainian pilot Nadia Savchenko in Russia
Today another trial on Ukrainian pilot Nadia Savchenko has taken place. Savchenko is being kept in Russian on false reasons.
During the trial Savchenko spoke Ukrainian, she wore T-shirt with Ukrainian trident [National Ukrainian coat of arms]. She has informed that she is being kept in Russian since June 24 not June 30 as the investigators say. According to Savchenko’s lawyer Mark Feigin the investigation has no evidence against his client. Still the court made decision to detain Savchenko for 2 more months.
‘You have no justice, you do not have law. Your government is just… thatk God we don’t have Yanukovich anymore. I will believe you will not have Putin soon’, – said Savchenko.
She said that she was doing her duty, she was protecting Ukraine.
‘I do not recognize myself guilty, I didn’t kill the journalists. I do not understand what Russian investigation and court have to do with events in Ukraine. I am Ukrainian soldier and I was doing my job. How foreigners may decide in what way I should protect my country?’, – she said in the court.
Savchenko’s lawyer Feign is confident that investigation has no evidence of her involvement in the death of journalists Korneliuk and Voloshyn.
Still, despite the absence of evidence the court has taken decision to detain Sanvchenko for 2 more months. Moreover, she is to be sent to psychiatric examination to Moscow and lawyers will not be able to access her for a month.
