MOSCOW, February 19. /TASS/. Ukrainian pilot Nadezhda Savchenko has requested medical examination by an international independent panel of doctors, Savchenko’s lawyer Nikolay Polozov said on Thursday.
"Nadezhda Savchenko asks for undergoing a medical examination by an international independent panel of doctors, including a cardiologist," Polozov said.
The lawyer noted that the state of her health continues deteriorating, but she refuses to stop hunger strike.
According to Polozov, Savchenko does not trust doctors from Russia’s Federal Penitentiary Service (FPS) and German medics that claimed to be "experts on hunger" and carried out only an ultrasound examination. "No one has seen any documents by German doctors. The defense and Savchenko herself appealed to FPS with a request to present the medical documents," he added.
