The arrested MP Nadiya Savchenko ceased her hunger strike and announced she had suffered a partial loss of vision and hearing. The judge of Shevchenkivsky district court in Kyiv said that as quoted by UNN news agency.

The judge read Savchenko's announcement aloud at the session. The court was supposed to consider the prosecutor's plea to extend the detention period. However, Savchenko did not appear at the courtroom due to the worsened health state.

'It's the first day of the withdrawal from the dry hunger strike that lasted for seven days. I cannot physically participate in the court session due to the partial loss of vision and hearing', Savchenko said as quoted by the judge.

According to the judge, Savchenko finds it difficult to walk because of the dizziness she experiences at the moment.

Earlier today, Shevchenkivsky District Court of Kyiv has postponed the court session in case of MP Nadia Savchenko due to her poor well-being. The session is now slated for December 17.
