In her letter, Nadezhda Savchenko writes about going on a hunger strike as of April 6 and her determination to return to Ukraine as a free person. Nadezhda also mentions that her release may lead to peace, while her being kept in prison will result in a full-scale war.
Nikolay Polozov, Nadezhda Savchenko’s lawyer, published her letter on his Twitter page:
I’ll be brief.
The trial is farcical, the verdict is a bluff.
They will be bargaining, with everybody trying to make the most of it and waiting for a chance to keep up appearances.
I refuse to be a commodity. Let me decide my own fate. So, my advice to the politicians would be not to bargain but to work out a solution through talks. Because nobody will benefit from my death, it will only make things worse. May ‘the big wigs’ be prudent. My release may lead to peace, while my being kept in jail will result in a full-scale war.
I understand they will be trying to break me by applying more pressure. But I swear I will not give in and keep fighting until the very end! As of April 6, I’m going on a hunger strike and be on it until I win. I’m determined to return to Ukraine as a free person and not to stay in jail.
I’ll see you soon in Ukraine as a FREE person!
Long live Ukraine!
Thank you all.
With Ukraine in my heart.
