DONETSK, Mar 22 : A Russian court on Tuesday sentenced Ukrainian pilot Nadezhda Savchenko to 22 years in jail after finding her guilty of involvement in the killing of two Russian journalists during the separatist conflict in eastern Ukraine.
The sentence is likely to further inflame Russia's already dire relations with Kiev, and prompt protests from the European Union, which has called for Savchenko's release.
Savchenko, a 34-year-old who has become a national hero at home in Ukraine, was defiant as the verdict was read out, singing the Ukrainian national anthem while standing on a bench.     ?REUTERS
