 Savchenko will not be convicted before Putin's visit to UN as this will spur General Assembly to create MH17 tribunal

The lawyer of Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko believes that Savchenko will not be convicted prior to the visit of Russian President Putin to the UN and before a possible UN General Assembly’s decision on the establishment of the tribunal to try the people responsible for the crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.

Lawyer of the Ukrainian pilot Mark Feigin wrote on Twitter, Censor.NET reports.

"Polozov has expressed a very significant argument about the fact that Savchenko will not be delivered verdict until Sept. 27. This is the day of Putin's visit to the UN. It seems that the postponement of Savchenko's trial is directly related to the international pressure put on the Russian Federation in connection with MH17 tribunal. It appears that Savchenko will not be convicted until the UN General Assembly makes its decision on creation of tribunal. This would give an additional argument to the "enemies" of the Kremlin. One must remember that there is nothing worse in Savchenko's case for the Kremlin than the recognition by the international community that there is no justice and independent court in the Russian Federation," Feigin wrote.

He reminded that information campaign of Kremlin against Savchenko's defense will increase substantially before the trial and urged not to fall for it.
