First Anniversary of Nadiya Savchenko’s Captivity
By Ulana Zinych
By Ulana Zinych
A year has passed since Nadiya Savchenko, a Lieutenant in the Ukrainian armed forces and volunteer in the Aidar Battalion was kidnapped on Ukrainian soil by Russian backed militants and illegally transported to Russia.
The Russian government produced lie after lie related to this illegal capture, initially stating that Nadiya crossed into Russia herself and later accusing her of the murder of two Russian journalists. Even after undeniable proof was presented that she had nothing to do with those deaths, the Russian government continues with their lies. Nadiya was jailed and even sent to Serbsky Institute for a forensic psychological evaluation. We know that it was not she, but her captors who needed the evaluation. Nadiya suffered her maltreatment and humiliation with a demeanor of dignity becoming a lieutenant and Ukrainian patriot.
Lest we forget Nadiya's earlier achievements, she was a graduate of the Air Force University in Kharkiw, the first woman to be accepted to this prestigious University.
Of interest to many international followers is the fact that she served with the Peacekeeping troops in Iraq.Her military service spanned between 1997 to 2014.In October 2014 while a prisoner in Russia, she resigned from the service and was elected (in absentia) to the Verkhovna Rada, the Ukrainian Parliament.More
