Material about the Savchenko case is getting harder to find, as Russian press (even the kreakl press) seems to be losing interest.
And the material that is out there, is now running one day late. For example, I found this material today in ROSBALT, but it’s all about yesterday’s (=October 7) session.
The lede in the above story is the questioning of a witness named Dmitry Oslovsky. Oslovsky is the Separatist militiaman who detained Nadia Savchenko near the town of Metallist, Luhansk Province.
According to Oslovsky, when he encountered Savchenko, she was wearing camo without any badges or defining insignia. He also said that she was studying a map of the village, which showed militia placements.
Oslovsky [who suddenly, in this paragraph, is renamed to Osmolovsky] testified, that Savchenko told him, she was normally a helicopter pilot but was currently engaged in correcting fire.
Oslovsky was a secret witness. Journalists were shooed out of the courtroom when he testified.
Oslovsky’s testimony actually corroborates the Defense assertion that Savchenko was captured and brought across the border from Ukraine to Russia. If the judges believe this version, then they would find her not guilty of the charge of illegally crossing the border. But that is the least of her problems: She is also charged with a double murder.
