He also noted that the text of the verdict translated into Ukrainian was submitted to her March 25.

"She handed over both documents to me saying that there was no need to keep this garbage. We discussed current developments. I showed her the picture of American pilot Nancy Harkness Love. Nadiia was very surprised how much she looked like her. She thought first that it was her own old-fashioned picture - one cannot help but think about the transmigration of souls after that! We had a laugh about it," Polozov wrote.

He also noted that Nadiia asked to congratulate her mother Maria as she was going to celebrate her birthday tomorrow.

"She is upset that she misses this day the second year in a row being unable to celebrate it with her family. We discussed her case and figured out that the verdict would come into force April 5. She is not going to appeal it and forbids the lawyers to do so.

"Unfortunately, we failed to dissuade her from going on a dry hunger strike. She plans going on it April 6," he wrote.

"I live with Ukraine in my heart!" he quoted Savchenko as saying.
