MOSCOW, March 24./TASS/. The issue of former Ukrainian pilot Nadezhda Savchenko sentenced to 22 years in jail for complicity in the murder of two Russian journalists was brought up at talks of Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.
"Yes, the issue was brought up. Lavrov set out Russia’s stance on the issue," she added.
She said more details on the dialog will come at a news conference the ministers will give after John Kerry meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
On Tuesday, the Donetsk City Court in southern Russia’s Rostov Region found Nadezhda Savchenko guilty of complicity in the murder of Russian journalists Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin and of illegal border crossing and sentenced her to 22 years in jail and a fine of 30,000 rubles ($440). Savchenko earlier said she would neither recognize nor appeal the sentence.
