The health of Nadezhda Savchenko, a Ukrainian pilot illegally held in Russian prison, is getting worse and requires immediate medical examination.
However, Savchenko does not allow Russian doctors to examine her, and Ukrainian doctors have still not received permission from the Russian authorities to visit the Ukrainian pilot.
According to her lawyer Nikolay Polozov, the sharp deterioration in Nadezhda Savchenko’s health is caused by her release of the dry hunger strike.
“Yesterday she tried to drink but it caused vomiting. In addition, the state of her ruined health is getting worse. The stress of hunger (especially a dry one) aggravated the old problem with kidney stones. High temperature that has not been decreasing for several days proves, at least, a serious inflammation of the internal organs. In other words, a medical examination is what she urgently needs now,” Polozov wrote on his Facebook page.
The lawyer also stressed that the critical health conditions of Nadezhda requires prompt actions, despite the unwillingness of the Russian side.
“In Russia, all the doors are closed for Nadezha Savchenko, and Ukraine is objectively unable to provide urgent assistance to the hostage. Lawyers are not doctors and cannot objectively assess her state of health. In my opinion, the situation is critical. Nadezhda’s health and life are melting away. Time is running out,” Polozov wrote.
It was reported earlier by QHA that Nadezhda Savchenko, a Ukrainian pilot illegally held in Russian prison, stopped the dry hunger strike.
