According to Savchnko’s lawyer Mark Feigin, she does not agree with hospitalization, but the defense plans to persuade her.

“Nadezhda is planned to be hospitalized on Friday. However, she hasn’t given her consent to it, but we will persuade her to agree,” Feigin said in his interview with Interfax news agency.

In the case of a positive response Savchenko will be sent to a hospital in the city of Rostov-on-Don (Russia).

“There is a hospital for prisoners and convicts in the city and there is a high probability that Nadezhda will agree to hospitalization, and it will happen,” Feigin said. 

According to the lawyer, the question of the exchange of the Ukrainian political prisoner has been postponed, as Russia does not undertake any necessary actions and make suggestions.

“There is no any practical solution yet, no terms or conditions,” summed up the lawyer.

As QHA reported earlier, the health of Nadezhda Savchenko, a Ukrainian pilots illegally held in Russia, indicates a high probability of death.

On March 22, Donetsk City Court (Rostov region, Russia) sentenced Savchenko to 22 years in prison. Nadezhda said she would resume a dry hunger strike on the tenth business day when the verdict enters into force. And on March 25, the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine reported that the state of Savchenko’s health had deteriorated significantly.
