As reported by Censor.NET, the lawyer posted the letter on his Facebook page.
"Briefly: the trial is a farce, the sentence is a bluff.
"They will bargain over me. Everyone will want to snatch as much as possible and wait for an opportunity not to lose their own prestige.
"I'm not a commodity. I myself shape my destiny. Therefore, I encourage politicians not to bargain but negotiate. Because my death will benefit no one, it will get only worse... I wish "big papas" wisdom. I can be a beginning of either peace or a war path.
"I understand they will be breaking me down and the pressure will grow. But It wouldn't be me, if I hadn't sustained it then, if I don't sustain it in future!
"I start a dry hunger strike on April 6 and go to the bitter end! I will leave the detention facility only for Ukraine and not for a jail.
"See you in freedom in Ukraine. Ukraine above all! Glory to Ukraine!"
