Ukrainian People's Deputy Nadiya Savchenko started a hunger strike on August 2 due to government's inaction on the issue of prisoners' exchange. She said the hunger strike does not prevent her from fulfillment of per political duties, Radio Svoboda reports.

"I smoke cigarettes and drink water - hunger strike is officially on. It does not prevent me from fulfillment of my political duties", Savchenko said.

She wants to see the 'all for all' prisoners' swap as a result of the hunger strike.

"I am sure that this exchange will be implemented. They will discuss it and then try to make it. I think we will see the results no matter will I continue the hunger strike or not. I just do everything possible, everything I can do myself", Nadiya explained.
