MOSCOW, April 27. /TASS/. The health of Ukrainian ex-pilot Nadezhda Savchenko, who has recently resumed hunger strike in a Moscow jail, arouses concerns, a renowned Russian human rights activist, Mikhail Fedotov, said on Monday.
"She keeps up hunger strike and her health is concerning and the analyses are deteriorating," Fedotov, who heads Russia’s presidential Council for Civil Society and Human Rights, said after visiting Savchenko in a pre-trial detention center.
Savchenko plans to talk to her lawyers, he said, adding: "It is highly likely that she will be moved to a hospital."
The Ukrainian woman is accused of complicity in the killing of two Russian journalists near Luhansk, in eastern Ukraine, last summer and illegally crossing into Russia.
On February 10, Moscow’s Basmanny court satisfied a motion of an investigator on extending Savchenko’s custody until May 13. Savchenko has declared hunger strike several times.
