Russia: Savchenko found guilty following flawed trial
Nadiya Savchenko was sentenced to 22 years in prison on 22 March by a court consisting of three judges in Donetsk in Southern Russia. She was found guilty of attempted murder, the murder of two Russian journalists, and of illegally crossing the Russian border. The trial was marred by fair trial violations and has failed to deliver justice for Nadiya Savchenko or for the journalists, Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin, who were killed in eastern Ukraine.
