MOSCOW, March 4. /TASS/. Kremlin has not received a letter from Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko with a request to free the former Ukrainian Air Force pilot Nadezhda Savchenko, the Russian President’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday.
"If it was sent by diplomatic channels then I hope it’ll be delivered," he said.
Along with it, Peskov said a yet another time that it would be too difficult to discuss any motions as regards Savchenko before the completion of all the investigative activities.
"Besides, she is suspected of involvement in the tragic death of our journalists and that is why investigatory actions are in progress," he said.
Savchenko is accused of complicity to the death of two Russian journalists near Luhansk in eastern Ukraine and illegal border crossing.
Russian investigators say that Savchenko, the gunner of a Mi-24 helicopter, joined the notorious Aidar battalion during combat operations in the 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.
Ukrainian ex-military Nadezhda Savchenko, who has been on hunger strike since mid-December, may soon be examined by foreign doctors.
