A court in the small Russian border town of Donetsk in Rostov Oblast on March 22 found Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Sevchenko guilty of complicity in the murder of two Russian journalists in Ukraine.

And in an incident typical of her behavior during the trial, Savchenko
broke into a rousing Ukrainian folk song after the guilty verdict was read. The judge
immediately ordered a break in proceedings and cleared the court, with Savchenko’s sentence yet to be handed down.

When proceedings resumed, Savchenko was sentenced to 22 years in prison – prosecutors had demanded 23 years.
