Savchenko Moved To Detention Center In Rostov Region

Ukrainian military pilot Nadia Savchenko stands inside a defendants' cage as she attends a court hearing in Moscow in May.

Jailed Ukrainian pilot and parliament member Nadia Savchenko has been taken to a detention facility in the city of Shakhty in Rostov region.

Her lawyer Mark Feigin told Interfax on July 25 that Savchenko was already at the detention facility.

TASS reported that her relatives had been informed that she is staying at the Novocherkassk detention center.

An indictment against Savchenko was sent to the Donetsk town court in Rostov region on July 13.

The indictment is due to pave the way for a trial.

Savchenko, who has been jailed since July 2014, says she was illegally brought into Russia after being abducted by Russian-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine.
