ROSTOV-ON-DON, July 30. /TASS/. Former Ukrainian pilot Nadezhda Savchenko charged with complicity in the murder of two Russian journalists in Donbass last year was brought to the Donetsk city court in the south Russian Rostov region on Thursday, a court spokesman said.
The court will hold preliminary hearings of Savchenko's case. Her lawyers say they do not expect the trial to last longer than a month.
Russian investigators say that Savchenko joined the notorious Aidar battalion during combat operations in the much-troubled Luhansk region of Ukraine last June.
Upon noting the position of a filming crew of the Russian State Broadcasting Company and other civilians, the 33-year-old believably reported the data to mortar-equipped personnel who opened fire at the crew and the civilians. As a result, correspondent Igor Kornelyuk and sound engineer Anton Voloshin were killed.
