 "If dry hunger strike has no effect, perhaps my death will make a difference," - Savchenko

Ukrainian pilot and Verkhovna Rada deputy Nadiia Savchenko, who was illegally convicted in Russia, is set to refuse from analyses and examinations by Russian doctors from tomorrow and continue her dry hunger strike without follow-up.

Censor.NET reports quoting Facebook of Savchenko's lawyer Nikolay Polozov.

"After more than five hours of waiting I was let inside. Vira was not allowed to see her sister in the end. As I suspected, Nadiia had been pumped with intravenous infusions. She showed her hands, they were pricked all over, no live veins. The doctors tried to find a vein even on the legs. Her health condition is grave, spirits are very low," he wrote.

"Nadiia was waiting to meet with her sister Vira today, after which she was going to make difficult decisions. I'm afraid that the refusal to allow Vira in the facility triggered these decisions of Nadiia," Polozov supposed.

According to him, from tomorrow Savchenko rejects analyzes and surveys by Russian doctors and continues her dry hunger strike without follow-up. Given the state of her health, she has four or maximum five days, the lawyer suggested.

"Savchenko does not believe in a soonest positive resolution of the issue of her release, she does not believe politicians concerned with their own problems. When I parted with Nadiia, she said: "If the dry hunger strike has no effect, perhaps my death will make a difference," Polozov said.
