Today Ukraine’s Minister of Exterior Pavlo Klimkin had tweeted that Ukrainian medical workers are finally allowed to see Nadiya Savchenko after her astonishing 83 days long hunger strike to help her recover after this daring act of non-violent protest. This information has also been confirmed by Savchenko’s attorney Mark Feygin. A day before that, Ukrainian medics have been already waiting for confirmation of visiting Nadiya, but after an 8 hour wait have been all the same denied access to the patient by Russian penitentiary authorities. Earlier Nadiya Savchenko declared that she will continue her hunger strike, if non other than Ukrainian specialists are allowed to her treatment. The hunger strike that Nadiya Savchenko has carried on since December 15th 2014 is the sign of her protest against her kidnapping by the Russian terrorist forces in Ukraine and the unlawful incarceration in Russia which followed. “Thanks to the concerted efforts of many, from President Poroshenko to our consul in Moscow, Ukrainain doctors are now with Nadiya” Pavlo Klimkin wrote in his tweet under the hashtag #FreeSavchenko.
