The indictment has been passed by Judge Leonid Stepanenko, who previously slammed the arguments of Nadiia Savchenko's lawyers.

Savchenko started singing a song when the judge announced that the court had found her guilty.

The judge did not manage to fully deliver the verdict as the broadcast from the courtroom was interrupted.

Nadiia Savchenko's lawyer Ilya Novikov said that the judge did not have time to voice the sentence. Savchenko was removed from the courtroom between the word "guilty" and her song. "The judges did not take into account a single argument of the defense," Novikov said.

It should be reminded that prosecutors sought sanction of 23 years in standard regime penal colony and 100,000 RUB fine for Nadiia Savchenko. She is accused of murder (Part 2 of the Article 105 of the Criminal Code of Russia) of two journalists of the Russia-24 TV channel, attempted murder (Part 3 of the Article 30, Part 2 of the Article 105 of the Criminal Code) of civilians, illegal crossing of the border (Part 1 of the Article 322 of the Criminal Code).
