Nadiya Savchenko’s lawyer states that she is “slowly dying” in a Russian prison after a 50-day hunger strike.

Ilya Novikov, who visited Savchenko in the hospital of Matrosskaya Tishina Prison told Radio Liberty that she still refuses to eat, drinks about two liters of water a day, and allows doctors to feed her intravenously (“everything they deem necessary”).

“Frankly speaking, she is dying… she is dying very slowly.” said the lawyer.

Savchenko was transferred to the hospital on January 29 due to “sudden weight loss”, as announced by the doctors.

Savchenko is accused of involvement in the death of Russian journalists. She denies all the charges. Her defense lawyer insists that Savchenko was kidnapped and forcibly abducted from Ukraine.

Later Savchenko was accused of illegally crossing the Russian border.

Ilya Novikov: Greetings from Nadia! She looks rather dark and gloomy here. Don’t believe it. It’s my own clumsy fingers…. Colors and shading are Nadia’s
