MOSCOW, July 2. /TASS/. A sister of former Ukrainian pilot Nadezhda Savchenko was not allowed to visit her in a Russian pre-trial detention center, Savchenko’s lawyer Ilya Novikov said in his microblog.
"The sister of Nadezhda Savchenko was not allowed to visit her in the pre-trial detention center. The Investigative Committee did not sign the permit," Novikov said.
Savchenko is accused of involvement in the murder of two Russian journalists in Ukraine's eastern Luhansk Region last summer, as well as illegal crossing of the border with the Russian Federation. She has been arraigned. The period of investigation on her case has been extended until November 13.
The investigator said Wednesday that Savchenko and her lawyers have completed getting familiarized with the case materials, and they will soon sign a relevant protocol. After familiarization, the case will be handed to the prosecutor’s office for approval of indictment and later passed to court.
