Female Ukrainian pilot on trial in Russia for murder

This 33 year old woman was the only female soldier in Ukraine's peacekeeping contingent in Iraq. When she returned from Iraq, she became an Mi-24 helicopter and Su-24 jet pilot. In 2014, she was captured by pro-Russian separatists and transported to Russia, accused of giving artillery coordinates which caused the deaths of two Russian journalists at a checkpoint. These two videos are worth checking out. The first one is a bit of her manifesto. The second is of her giving the finger to the court. Read more about her here.

I hate this. How can Russia claim the right to abduct someone from their country to put her in trial? Unbelievable.
