"The court has once again threatened to remove Savchenko from the hall. She says she will start a "dry" hunger strike if they remove her," Polozov wrote.

According to the lawyer, as at 3 p.m., the court was questioning the defense witness - Ukrtransnafta expert O. Pulenets. He is explaining how a person can climb the tower from which Savchenko, according to Russian investigators, adjusted artillery fire.
