Ukrainian air force pilot Nadezhda Savchenko -- who was captured by Russian-backed militants in eastern Ukraine, was kidnapped across the border into Russia, and is now facing murder charges for the deaths of two Russian state journalists who were killed by mortar fire -- has appealed for a new judge. Her current judge is currently sanctioned by the United States for his role in the death of whistleblower Sergei Magnitsky. 

That appeal has been rejected. RFE/RL reports

The judge, Artur Karpov of Moscow's Basmanny Court, explained his March 26 decision by the "lack of justification" of Savchenko's request to replace him with another judge.

Savchenko's lawyers requested Karpov's replacement, saying that Karpov was included in the list of Russian officials the U.S. Treasury Department imposed sanctions on for their involvement to the case of Russian whistleblower Sergei Magnitsky, who died in a Moscow jail in 2009. 

The U.S. sanctions bill is known as Magnitsky list.
