Nadezhda Savchenko Resumed Hunger-Strike

Savchenko has been on hunger strike since December to protest against her arrest. Later,  in early March she started taking chicken broth and special medical nutritional supplements as her health condition became worse.

      Since March 16 Savchenko started her hunger-strike again. "She is drinking water and strong tea with no sugar," Mark Feigin (the lawyer) said.

      Her second lawyer, Nikolay Polozov said that Nadezhda had no plans to stop the hunger-strike. She just took a pause because of her health problems.

      The deputy of Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine of the party “Batkivshchina” (“Fatherland”) Nadezhda Savchenko previously served in the Ukrainian volunteer “Aydar” battalion, in summer of 2014 she was detained by the Russian law enforcement authorities with the suspicion of involvement in the death of the Russian journalists Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin in Lugansk. According to the investigators, they were killed with on a tip of Savchenko, who was later detained at the Russian border, where she came under disguise of a refugee. Nadezhda herself denies any fault on her side. Savchenko and her lawyers argue that she was kidnapped in Lugansk Oblast and taken to Russia. On December 13, 2014 Savchenko announced hunger strike which has lasted until now, demanding to release her. On February 19 it became known that she refused from glucose injections helping to support her health, for her veins inflamed because of catheters.
