As of December 18, Nadezhda Savchenko, a Ukrainian helicopter pilot and MP, who is being held at a Russian pre-trial detention facility, is going on a hunger strike again, reads a message posted on a Twitter page of Mark Feigin, Savchenko’s lawyer.
“As of tomorrow, Nadezhda Savchenko is going on a hunger strike,” writes Feigin.
According to Nikolay Polozov, Savchenko’s second lawyer, she will be on a hunger strike until she is released.
“The court granted the prosecutors’ request that Nadezhda Savchenko be held in custody until April 16, 2016. Nadezhda said she would go on a waterless hunger strike and stay on it until her trial is over. Once her verdict is delivered, she will go on a waterless hunger strike. She demands that she is released,” – wrote Polozov on his Twitter page.
Prior to that, the court, despite Savchenko’s objections, granted the prosecutors’ request that a report on her health condition issued at the pre-trial detention facility be included in her case file. Protesting against being abducted and put on trial, Savchenko went on an unprecedented 83-day hunger strike following which she lost more than 20 kilos.
