Now she is accused not of accessory to murder, but of “joint participation in murder of two or more persons by socially dangerous means, motivated by hatred towards a social group with a group of persons in collusion.”
This was stated by official representative of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation Vladimir Markin.
According to him, the maximum term of imprisonment, which the Ukrainian pilot may face, is 25 years. The term is such only because the Criminal Code does not provide for a life imprisonment for women.
According to Markin, the second article, which appears in the indictment for Savchenko is the attempted murder of civilians, who may have been affected as a result of the shelling allegedly directed by Savchenko.
The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office has approved an indictment for Ukrainian citizen Nadia Savchenko and sent the criminal case to the Donetsk City Court, Rostov region, the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office reported on Monday.
