VORONEZH, August 28, /ITAR-TASS/. A court in the town of Voronezh in central Russia on Wednesday extended, to October 30, the custody of Ukrainian pilot Nadezhda Savchenko implicated in killing Russian journalists.
On July 9, Russia’s Investigative Committee charged Savchenko with abetting the killing of two VGTRK television company reporters. She was detained in Russia and put in custody.
Investigators say that during hostilities in the Ukrainian city of Lugansk in June Savchenko reported the location of two Russian journalists to Ukrainian servicemen who shelled the place killing both.
Savchenko's lawyers said they would insist that the court set her free on bail.
