Militants of the so-called LNR may consider offering Nadiya Savchenko 'political sanctuary'. Vladislav Deynego, the representative of the unrecognized 'republic' told that to the press in his commentary for the Russian media.  

'If Savchenko faces a threat of losing her freedom, she may turn to LNR for political asylum. We promise to look into this question,' he said.

According to Deynego, the Ukrainian government aims to discriminate Savchenko and isolate her from participation in politics.

On Thursday, March 22, Savchenko was deprived of her parliamentary immunity and detained in the session hall, immediately after the respective decision was made and voted for. Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko signed the suspicion notice and claimed Savchenko suspect in her lawyer's presence. She spent the night at the isolation cell of the SBU, Ukraine's security service.

Currently, the court chooses the pre-trial restriction for Savchenko, who is charged with several crimes against the state and leading officials. Prosecution recommends two-months long detention without the right for a bail; the defense insists on Savchenko's release.

The detainee claimed she goes on a hunger strike
