MOSCOW, March 2. /TASS/. The Moscow City Court ruled on Monday that the investigator's demand for a in-patient mental examination for detained Ukrainian former pilot Nadezhda Savchenko is legal.
The Moscow court rejected the complaint earlier filed by Savchenko’s defense lawyers asking to declare illegal the ruling of the Basmanny court that also defended the investigator’s actions.
Moscow’s Basmanny district court authorized the in-patient psychiatric examination for Savchenko on November 11. The defense team had demanded an out-patient expertise.
Savchenko is charged with complicity in the killing of two Russian journalists in eastern Ukraine last year in line of duty committed by a group of individuals with a "socially dangerous method" and a "political hatred motive."
Russian investigators say that Savchenko, the gunner of a Mi-24 helicopter, joined the notorious Aidar battalion during combat operations in the much-troubled Luhansk region of Ukraine last June.
Upon finding out the position of a filming crew of the Russian State Broadcasting Company and other civilians, she allegedly reported the data to mortar men who then delivered fire at the crew and the civilians. As a result, correspondent Igor Kornelyuk and sound engineer Anton Voloshin were killed.
