Nadiya Savchenko is not guilty of the murder of the Russian journalists, and it is confirmed by the video, filmed by the Russians. Savchenko's protection got a video evidence that the Ukrainian pilot was captured before the journalists were killed. This was announced by the lawyer Mark Feygin on one of the Ukrainian TV channels, Joinfo.ua reports.

The video shows the militants interrogating blindfolded Savchenko.

"Even the Investigation Committee will not appeal the fact that is the territory of Ukraine. Since it does not claim otherwise, but agrees that she was captured by the Zarya Battalion on June 17. Time is of much more importance here," Feygin said.

According to the results of the video examination, it was shot at about 10 am.

"Our specialists have held their expertise. The expert defined it was 10 o'clock in the morning by degrees and azimuth position of the sun," the lawyer said.

The prosecution in Russia argues that Savchenko was a fire support coordinator when the journalists were killed and about 12 am she phoned Sergei Melnychuk, the commander of the Aidar Battalion. However, according to the record, at that time Savchenko had been captured for over two hours and had not a cell phone with her.

Her lawyers have already filed a request to include the video in trial bundles. There were already held two examinations: on definition of Savchenko's voice and the time of shooting.

It should be recalled that Nadiya Savchenko changed the mode of the hunger strike and agreed to eat chicken broth. This information was confirmed by her lawyer Mark Feygin.
