The request was supported by Savchenko's lawyer Mark Feigin. He added that today's debate included speeches by the prosecution and Nadiia Savchenko and that it would be logical to go further the next day. The prosecution made no objection. The judge granted the request.

As reported, a debate of sides in Savchenko's case started today in Russia's court.

The Russian prosecution asks for a 23-year imprisonment for the Ukrainian pilot. In turn, Savchenko threatens to go on a "dry" hunger strike tomorrow.
