Amnesty International calls for a retrial of Ukrainian helicopter pilot Nadiya Savchenko after a Russian court's "deeply politicized" guilty verdict on charges of murdering two Russian journalists.
"It is abhorrent to send Nadiya Savchenko to prison after such a flawed, deeply politicized trial," says John Dalhuisen, Amnesty's London-based director for Europe and Central Asia.
"The only way justice can be delivered both for Nadiya, and the journalists who were killed, is for there to be a full and impartial investigation into her allegations and a retrial that remains free of political interference and complies with international fair trial standards," Dalhuisen says.
