MOSCOW, December 4. /TASS/. The verdict in the case of former Ukrainian pilot Nadezhda Savchenko may be announced until the end of this year, Russia’s Investigative Committee official spokesman Vladimir Markin said on Friday.
The case has been heard by the Donetsk court in southern Russia’s Rostov region since September 22. "Its consideration is in the final stage. I think, the verdict will be by the yearend. I guess it will be tough," Markin told the Vesti. FM radio station.
Investigators say Savchenko, a Ukrainian forces officer, joined the Aidar militant battalion and in June 2014 was conducting covert surveillance and direction of artillery bombarding a checkpoint in eastern Ukraine's unrecognized Luhansk People’s Republic.
Russian journalists Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin died in the shelling. Savchenko is also charged with attempted homicide as six local residents also came under fire. If found guilty, Savchenko faces up to 25 years in prison.
