MOSCOW, April 30. /TASS/. Former Ukrainian pilot Nadezhda Savchenko’s lawyers insist on returning her from the special block of the 20th Moscow city hospital to a prison medical unit, Savchenko’s lawyer Mark Feigin told TASS on Thursday.
"The defense is confident that the conditions in the 20th city hospital, in the special block, are significantly worse than we expected and definitely worse than the conditions in the prison. We are also convinced that the fact that Nadezhda’s relatives and Ukraine’s consul are prohibited from visiting her in the 20th city hospital, violates her rights," Feigin said.
Savchenko’s stay in the hospital also hampers the work of lawyers, he added. "After coordinating our position with the defendant, we will insist on returning her to the prison medical unit," the lawyer noted.
Savchenko is accused of complicity in the killing of two Russian journalists, Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin, last summer and illegally crossing the Russian border. The Ukrainian national, who refused to admit her guilt, went on hunger strike in mid-December to protest against her custody.
