"Nadiya Savchenko is in a special block of the 20th city hospital of Moscow, with barred windows on the 4th floor. The conditions there are worse than in prison. There is lack of air and light and family visits are not provided; the mattress smells like bedridden patients. The special block of the civilian hospital often accepts the dying, who can no longer walk. Nadiya still can. The Federal Service for Execution of Punishment considers her prone to escape, violence, and suicide. On the first day the guards were afraid and led her into the shower and to the restroom in handcuffs. Today they stopped [doing so - ed.]," he wrote.

"Nadiya sends her greetings to everyone. She promised Yelizaveta Glinka that she will start eating in a civilian hospital - yesterday and today she took the food and the doctors brought her a bubble of mixture in my presence. She plans to take part in the court hearing on May 6 and has no further plans. Since it is unknown how long she will stay in the hospital, congratulations to her on her birthday on May 11 are better to be sent to the following address of the detention center: FKU SIZO-1UFSIN Russia in Moscow. 107076, Matrosskaya Tishina str., building 18," he wrote.
