VORONEZH, September 12. /ITAR-TASS/. The Voronezh regional court will consider the defence appeal against holding Ukrainian pilot Nadezhda Savchenko under arrest.
The Russian Investigative Committee charges the Ukrainian woman with complicity in the murder of two Russian television reporters on July 9. She was detained and taken into custody in Russia. Investigators said she was a gunner of a Mi-8 helicopter and a member of the Ukrainian battalion Aidar. She is suspected of informing Ukrainian forces about whereabouts of the reporters and other civilians near Lagansk. The journalists of the state Russian television company VGTRK, Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin, were killed when mortar fire was opened directly on them and other people.
Savchenko’s defence appealed against a district court’s decision to prolong her arrest to October 30.
