February 25, 2015 20:31


The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry told about the deterioration of health of Savchenko. Due to the hunger strike, irreversible changes began in the body of the former Ukrainian soldier Nadezhda Savchenko, according to the Foreign Ministry spokesman Yevgenii Perebiynis with the reference to the medical data.

This was reported on Tuesday, February 24 by “BBC Ukraine”. “The hunger strike of Nadezhda has lasted for more than 70 days. According to doctors, irreversible changes in her body have already begun. Today we are literally talking about her life” – Perebiynis stated. According to him, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine is indignant at “the position of the Russian authorities concerning the release of Nadezhda Savchenko and other Ukrainian citizens”.

The agency representatives also consider it “an attempt to decide their fate beyond Minsk agreements” and an open violation. “Instead of taking urgent measures to rescue Nadezhda and implement the decision of PACE on the on necessity of her release, Russian Foreign Ministry provides cynical statements about who is or is not entitled to demand the release of the illegally detained Ukrainian citizen” – Perebiynis added.

Earlier on February 24 the Russian Foreign Ministry commented on the statement of the official representative of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, Rupert Colville, where he paid attention to the fate of Savchenko. “The UN official took the liberty to address the Russian authorities demanding them to immediately release the Ukrainian pilot Savchenko “for humanitarian reasons”. <...> We regard this address as a brusque and open attempt to put pressure on justice.

We consider it an absolutely unacceptable situation when the UN executive structure publicly urges the UN member state to violate the rule of law and attempts to influence the trial” – the agency stated. 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.
