Russian ombudswoman ignores requests from Ukraine to let doctors examine Savchenko
The two letters from Ukrainian ombudswoman have been so far unanswered
Valeria Lutkovska, Ukraine’s ombudswoman, said she turned to her Russian colleague Ella Pamfilova twice, asking her to let Ukrainian doctors visit Nadiya Savchenko in pre-trial detention facility in Russia (nv.ua). However, as of Saturday morning, no reply has followed so far.
“I’m thankful to Pamfilova and her assistance, which made it possible that on March 7, her representatives visited Nadiya. Butthat’s, unfortunately, notenough. On March 9, I sent her another letter asking for help – sadly, there’s no reply so far”, Lutkovska said.
As 112 International reported, on March 10, Savchenko ceased her six-days-long waterless hunger strike; she drinks water and takes childhood nutrition. According to her lawyer Nikolai Polozov, the pilot’s health conditions seriously worsened after she ceased the hunger strike.
The Russian court decided to pronounce the sentence in Savchenko’s case on March 21 and 22.
By the earlier court decision, the pilot is to stay in detention until mid-April.
Nadia Savchenko, MP and former Ukraine’s Air Force officer, was captured by pro-Russian militants in eastern Ukraine in summer 2014. She says they captured her, forcefully brought her to Russia and passed her to Russian investigative authorities. Savchenko is charged with murder of two Russian reporters who worked in eastern Ukraine without any permission of the Ukrainian government. She is also charged with the illegal crossing of the Russian border. The pilot, her defense team and the Ukrainian government deny all charges, demanding to release her.
