Russian journalist: The judge is scared of Savchenko's closing statements

The final hearing of Ukrainian citizen, Nadiya Savchenko, has been postponed by the judge after the Ukrainian pilot compared Russian President, Vladimir Putin, to Hitler. Anton Naumock, the correspondent of the Russian Bureau of Radio Liberty, stated this during the evening radio broadcast of Krym.Realii.

According to him, Nadiya Savchenko "has always responded bluntly to any injustice" and that is why the judge has postponed the session on March 9, 2016.

"She was constantly in altercations with the court...  In my opinion, the judge was just afraid of what the last word heard would be from Nadiya Savchenko while under the spotlight of a huge amount of cameras.  Today, there were 59 accredited mass media representatives in the Donetsk municipal court, including international media, if I'm not mistaken.  The text has already been posted on Vera Savchenko's, her sister, website. In principle, most likely, the text was known to the court.  The text is quite harsh. You are not usually allowed to say such things about Russian courts", the Russian journalist said.
