 Savchenko says she will continue the hunger strike: "Not long left for these bastards to rejoice". PHOTOS

Ukrainian aviatrix Nadiya Savchenko said she would continue the hunger strike.

She said this in the hall of the Basmanny Court of Moscow, Censor.NET reports citing UNIAN.

"I will not give up the hunger strike until a fair trial," Savchenko said.

According to her, she feels "ok, although sooner or later it will finish me." "40 kg is death. Now I am 55, with 15 more left, so it will not finish me that soon," she said.

Savchenko noted that sometimes she felt dizzy, but generally she feels "okay … Since there are emotions, I am still alive."

According to Savchenko, she asked skinny women whether or not they feel constant pain in the bones. "It turns out it is true. They are constantly freezing, they are constantly tired and sleepy. I was surprised that thin people live like that. I never lived like that so this state is very strange for me, but as it turns out, it's not out of the ordinary," Savchenko said. "I do not advise girls to diet."

Savchenko promised that when they change the measure of restraint, she will definitely have a good meal. "If my arrest is replaced by some kind of house arrest at the embassy, I will get back to my 70 kg, or even 80 kg, and will not even complain about it," she said.

Savchenko said that her plans for the future include "to go back and do my work which the people have entrusted me, start working for Ukraine, and not sit back and kill time in Russian prisons."

She said that she was planning to visit the PACE session in April, and hopes to do that not "as cargo 200 but alive." (cargo 200 is a Soviet code classification for dead soldiers - ed.)

"Not long left for these bastards to rejoice," Savchenko said.

Answering the question whether there is hope that she will be released, Savchenko said: "There's always hope, it dies last, and I'm still alive." (Nadiya means Hope in Ukrainian - ed.)
