US Secretary of State John Kerry expressed his deep concern about Nadiya Savchenko’s state of health. Ukrainian pilot since last Friday refused food and water in protest of her imprisonment in Russia.
This is stated in a press release posted on the US State Department website.
While continuing to hold her in detention, Russia demonstrates disrespect to international standards and Minsk Agreements obligations, the report said. US again urged Russia to immediately release Savchenko and return her to Ukraine, said in the text.
It is noted that during the 20 months that have passed since the Hope Savchenko was captured in eastern Ukraine and shipped to Russia, Ukrainian pilot steadfastly endured interrogations, solitary confinement and forced psychiatric examination.
