    Do you think they will tell you?
    I look at the picture and can't help thinking about someone cooking hot dogs on the grill and a couple roll off. The cook takes a quick look over his shoulder then quickly scoops up the fallen dogs and puts them back on the grill.

    No. That's exactly why I hope I won't be riding on one of these.

    Lieutenant Nadezhda Viktorovna Savchenko (33) from Kyiv. Graduate of the Ukraine Air Force College in Kharkiv. Qualified Airborne Paratrooper. Qualified Pilot/Navigator of Sukhoi Su-24M fighter jet and Pilot/Navigator of MI-24 combat helicopter. Served six months in Iraq assisting coalition forces. Joined the Ukraine Aydar battalion fighting separatists in eastern Ukraine. Was captured on June 18 near the village of Metalist during combat operations in Luhansk oblast. Transferred to the city of Luhansk and interrogated.

    Journalists have discovered that Ms Savchenko was subsequently trafficked to Russia. She is incarcerated in a pre-trial detention facility in the city of Voronezh. The Russian government claims she was a sniper and killed a Russian journalist during a firefight with pro-Russia separatists near Metalist.

    Nobody's singing her "Hit me baby one more time"

    What was she doing in Russia?

    To make mistakes is human. To blame someone else for your mistake, is strategic.

    That is a Russian allegation. Soldiers on the scene say she was medivacing the wounded.

    Ms Savchenko was never in Russia. She was conveyed to Voronezh, Russia after her capture by pro-Russia separatists in Ukraine.

    In a preliminary hearing today (9 July 2014) in Voronezh, Russia, Nadezhda V. Savchenko was indicted for complicity in murder.

    Russian authorities claim she was captured "crossing the border disguised as a refugee".

    An outright lie

    She was in uniform and a handcuffed prisoner while being interrogated by pro-Russia separatists in Luhansk, Ukraine.
