If previously Savchenko was incriminated with accessory to murder, now she is directly accused of murder of two Russian citizens. The case was sent to prosecutor's office for indictment approval.
As reported by one of her lawyers Nikolai Polozov in Twitter the kidnapped Ukrainian woman is accused of murder of Russian citizens, with their professional affiliation and journalist activity not being taken into account. "At some point the Investigative Committee realized that the killed journalists had been staying in Luhansk illegally and changed the subsumption. Senselessness, clumsiness and obvious failure of the charges will only strengthen Ukraine's position in the exchange negotiations," he said.
Earlier, the Investigative Committee did not allow closing the case against the Ukrainian pilot Nadiia Savchenko and considering it in Moscow by jury court.
