 Savchenko might be sentenced to 13 years or more, - lawyer Novikov

Illegally kept in Russia Ukrainian MP and aviatrix Nadiya Savchenko might be sentenced to 13 years in prison.

As reported by Censor.NET, this was announced by her lawyer Ilya Novikov on air of "Podrobnosti Nedeli" TV show.

"The sentence will be accusative, of 13 years or even more. We are neither bewildered nor interested in this. We understand that this figure does not decide when she returns home," Novikov said.

According to the lawyer, Savchenko's defense does not hope for fair sentence, for Russian justice changed a lot over the past 20 years.

"The justice will not be fair. It became ridiculous over the past 20 years. Savchenko will not be let out just like this. This will a blow for the country's authorities," Novikov stressed.
