Doctors from the 20th Moscow city hospital earlier confirmed that Savchenko’s condition was "satisfactory" after a new three-day hunger strike.
"Doctors from the 20th Moscow city hospital carried out a full medical examination of defendat Nadezhda Savchenko. After the examination and clinical-laboratory and instrumental research, the panel of doctors assessed Nadezhda Savchenko’s health condition as satisfactory," the press service said.
"The panel of doctors confirmed that Savchenko’s health condition is satisfactory. Consequently, the patient can be transferred to the prison [medical unit]," the 20th Moscow city hospital chief physician Andrey Krapivin told TASS.
