MOSCOW, March 20. /TASS/. The health condition of hunger-striking former Ukrainian pilot Nadezhda Savchenko, jailed in Russia on murder charges, is satisfactory, a deputy head of the Russian Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) said on Friday.
Savchenko, who resumed hunger strike on March 16, is not losing weight quickly and is feeling fine, Oleg Korshunov said. Her blood pressure is 110/60 and her blood sugar level is normal, he added.
"She is under daily monitoring of doctors," Korshunov said.
The official noted that in case Savchenko’s condition deteriorates, she will immediately get in-patient medical services. "Everything has been prepared for that," he said.
Savchenko went on hunger strike in December to protest against her arrest. In early March, she started taking chicken broth and special medical nutritional supplements.
Russian investigators say that Savchenko joined the notorious Aidar battalion during combat operations in the much-troubled Luhansk region of eastern Ukraine last June.
Noting the position of a filming crew of the Russian State Broadcasting Company and other civilians, she allegedly reported the data to mortar-equipped personnel who fired on the crew and the civilians. As a result, correspondent Igor Kornelyuk and sound engineer Anton Voloshin were killed.
