MOSCOW, April 7. /TASS/. Former Ukrainian pilot Nadezhda Savchenko has asked to allow German or Ukrainian doctors to examine her, lawyer Mark Feygin told TASS on Thursday.
"Nadezhda insists on allowing Ukrainian or German doctors to see her. Now she is not being provided with medical assistance," he said, adding that Savchenko underwent medical tests but did not receive the results.
Savchenko also refuses to end her "dry" hunger strike that she began on Wednesday.
The Ukrainian has declared several hunger strikes during her nearly two years in Russian custody. Last time, Savchenko announced a "dry" hunger strike on March 3, meaning that she refuses both food and water. The move came in protest as the Russian court delayed the decision in her case.
In late March, a court in southern Russia found Savchenko guilty of directing the pro-Kiev forces’ artillery fire in Ukraine's south-east that had killed Russian journalists. The judge also said she illegally crossed the Russian border. Savchenko denied any wrongdoing and didn’t recognize the Russian court’s verdict. However, the Ukrainian said she would not appeal the sentence.
