Ukraine’s MP Nadia Savchenko is under arrest now, she is suspected in terrorist attack preparation, agreed to have some food to be questioned by polygraph, as Vira Savchenko, her sister, wrote on Facebook.

“One cannot undergo polygraph procedure being on a hunger strike. As the body is overstressed, the heart beats unevenly and the temperature is higher than the norm, the results will be inaccurate. Nadia decided to interrupt, but not stop the hunger strike to undergo the polygraph procedure,” Vira said.

Oleg Solovey, Savchenko’s lawyer, said that Nadia interrupts the hunger strike for three days – April 13, 14, 15, as Ukrayinska Pravda reported. Savchenko is to be questioned by the polygraph on April 16.

According to Solovey, Savchenko will be eating the food permitted by the doctor.

“Within three days, she will consume minor products permitted by the doctor to show the public that she has not committed the crimes she was accused of and to finish the polygraph procedure on Monday,” the lawyer said.

The lawyer added that he went to the shop to buy some food for Savchenko.

Savchenko has confirmed her intentions with a relevant statement.
