MOSCOW, September 22 (RAPSI) - Ukrainian military ex-pilot Nadezhda Savchenko has denied charges of involvement in the killing of Russian journalists and civilians in Donbas, RIA Novosti reports from the Donetsk Court of the Rostov Region on Tuesday.

“I’m not guilty. All the charges are nonsense,” Savchenko said.

She is also denying an unlawful crossing of the Russian border. Savchenko claims she was kidnapped from Ukraine and brought to Russia.

However, the defendant agreed to testify and requested that all the witnesses be interviewed with a lie detector.

The court scheduled her interview for September 29.

Savchenko was arrested in Russia last summer on charges of involvement in the murder of two Russian TV journalists during hostilities in Donbas and on illegally crossing the border into Russia.

TV correspondent Igor Kornelyuk and sound engineer Anton Voloshin were killed on June 17 in a mortar attack.

Savchenko, who denies all the charges, is facing 25 years in prison.

Her attorneys claim that Savchenko was framed and that there is no evidence of involvement in the journalists’ murder. They also claim she did not cross the border voluntarily but was kidnapped.
