The pilot was provided with documents to return to Ukraine. Ukrainian pilot Nadezhda Savchenko has paid the fine of 30,000 rubles that was imposed by a Russian court.
This was reported by the pilot’s mother Maria Savchenko during her conversation with journalists.
'She was given documents to return to Ukraine. There is a column where she had to admit she crossed the border and asked for asylum. Furthermore, there is a fine too. Polozov explained her that there was an article: if she doesn’t pay this fine, these documents won’t be considered as valid ones. Thus, she agreed. She has no money there. The consuls gave her 40 thousand. She paid 30 thousand and said them to feed themselves with the sum,' 112 Ukraine quotes Savchenko’s mother as saying.
On May 5, Russia canceled its search for Vera Savchenko.
