Nadia Savchenko Attacks Ukraine's President for Killing Donbass Rebel 'Givi'

This post first appeared on Russia Insider

This is pretty explosive. Nadia Savchenko, the Ukrainian pilot convicted in Russia of killing 2 journalists in Donbass but later pardoned and released by Putin, has turned into a vocal critic of the regime. She has reportedly just charged Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko with the assassination of the Donbass separatist commander known as "Givi."

As reported on Stalkerzone:

Tolstykh, or "Givi" as he was known to his men, was one of the last high profile separatist commanders who had yet to be killed. He was a leader who displayed fearlessness under fire, as seen in this famous clip (below). In the face of an incoming rocket barrage, he calmly smoked a cigarette, not even flinching once.
