British Minister for European Affairs David Lidington called on Russia to stop the illegal detention of Nadiya Savchenko, - said in a statement on the website of Great Britain's Government.
"Dry fasting is a very real and immediate threat to Savchenko’s life. I urge the Russian government to show compassion and release Nadiya immediately," - said Lidington, speaking after a recent Court hearing of Savchenko’s case.
He recalled that the UK government has repeatedly called on the Russian government to cease her illegal detention.
"I am deeply worried after receiving the reports, the citizen of Ukraine Nadiya Savchenko now refuses to drink in protest against her illegal detention in Russia", - said Lidington.
