MOSCOW, March 28. /TASS/. No actions have been taken yet on Russia’s handover of Ukrainian ex-pilot Nadezhda Savchenko to Kiev, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday.

Savchenko has been convicted and "has a possibility to appeal de jure," Peskov said. "We wait. If any decisions are made or any steps are taken we will inform you," he stressed.

"No actions [linked to Savchenko’s handover] have been taken," Peskov said.

On March 22, the Donetsk City Court in Russia’s southern Rostov Region found Savchenko guilty of directing the Ukrainian army’s artillery fire in east Ukraine that had killed Russian journalists. She was found guilty of the killing of VGTRK journalists Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin and illegally crossing of the Russian border.

She was sentenced to 22 years in prison and a fine of 30,000 rubles ($440). As Savchenko said earlier, she didn’t recognize the court’s verdict but wouldn’t appeal against it.
