MOSCOW, April 12. /TASS./ Doctors consider that the health of former Ukrainian pilot Nadezhda Savchenko, who has been sentenced to 22 years in prison, is satisfactory and there is no need to send her to hospital, Russia’s federal prison authority said on Tuesday.
On Monday, a concilium of doctors was held on Savchenko’s health that involved experts in gastroenterology, cardiology, surgery, ultrasonic diagnosis and therapy.
"Following the examination and clinical tests, the concilium of doctors has assessed Savchenko’s health as satisfactory, she needs no urgent hospitalization," the Federal Penitentiary Service said in a statement.
Doctors continue keeping a watchful eye on Savchenko, who is receiving the necessary supporting therapy.
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 that officially came into force on April 5. The day after, Savchenko declared her "dry" hunger strike meaning that she refuses both food and water.
Currently, Savchenko is being kept in a detention center in Novocherkassk, southern Russia, and so far it is not known where she will be transferred to serve her sentence.
