What will become of Nadiya Savchenko?

Russia detains 114 people on political grounds, according to the organization for human rights Inostrannij Agent. The alleged offenses are often generic and pretentious. And in some cases they are victims of misuse of psychiatry, just like it used to happen in the USSR. Among the 114 names on the list, there is Nadiya Savchenko.

All of them are, according to the organization founded by van Voren, Inostrannij Agent, political prisoners accused of specious violations. By scrolling the list well-known faces and names appear among many others less known. There is Alexey Navalny, the so-called leader of nonexistent Russian opposition, and Anna Lepeshkina, one of the four free climbers last August have painted the big Soviet star on the ” Stalin tower”  in Moscow with the colors of the Ukrainian flag. As well as many guys who were arrested after the Bolotnaya clashes in 2012. There is also Eston Kohver, the Estonian Border Guard kidnapped last September by the FSB and still in pretrial detention. And there’s Nadiya Savchenko.

I already wrote the story of Nadiya’ve more than three months ago in a post I titled “Her hardest fight”. And that’s exactly the reason why I want to tell it again, just because more than three months have gone and with each passing day it seems that she is going to lose her battle.
Lieutenant Nadezhda Savchenko was captured by separatist in the east of Ukraine and imprisoned in Lugansk. A prisoner of war, at least until it re-appeared in the court of Voronezh, Russia. She is accused of murder and illegal immigration. If true, the story would be nothing short of incredible. According to the Russian Investigative Committee, a kind of superpower of attorney directly subordinate to the Kremlin, Nadiya – a proud soldier of the Ukrainian army, an anti-tank helicopter co-pilot – would have run away from his own fellow soldiers seeking refuge in Russia. There, police found her without documents during a random control and arrested her for illegal immigration. Only later, as it happens, the Russian police would have noticed whom they had in their hands. Therefore, she was charged with the murder of Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin, two Russian journalists killed by mortar fire on June 17 in Metalist, near Lugansk. According to the prosecution, in short, Nadiya guided from her helicopter the mortar fire fatal to the two journalists.
