The Ukrainian fighter pilot, sentenced by Donetsk city court (Rostov region, Russia) to 22 years in penal colony, is about to resume her waterless hunger strike on April 6, reads the message at her Facebook page.
“The so-called Russian court gave me 22 years in prison and 30,000-ruble (412 US dollars) fine. That judge could have left his great mark in history; instead, he chose not to. In ten days, the “sentence” will take effect. I won’t file any appeals to the court that I do not recognize. I go back to my waterless hunger strike on April 6, 2016”, Nadiya’s statement says. “The work has just begun. It’s better to die in Ukraine than to live in Russia! Ukraine above all!”, the pilot wrote.
