It should be noted that the Russian Federation accuses Savchenko of committing the murder of Russian journalist Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin near Luhansk last summer as well as illegal crossing of the Russian border.

At the same time, the main evidence points to the fact that Savchenko had already been imprisoned by the "LPR" terrorists when the Russian journalists were killed. In addition, it was reported that the terrorists took Ukrainian pilot to Russia forcibly.
