Savchenko is going to go on dry hunger strike after sentence takes legal effect
Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko intends to go on dry hunger strike again, her lawyer Mark Feygin said.
"Nadiya wants to go on dry hunger strike in ten days, when the sentence takes legal effect. She believes she should be sent home immediately after this date," Feygin told Interfax on Monday.
Feygin said Savchenko has no intention of filing an appeal.
"It's her decision, she believes not filing an appeal will speed up the negotiation process and her handover to Ukraine," the lawyer said.
The lawyer said the decision not to file an appeal will make it impossible to have the sentence reversed in the European Court of Human Rights.
"She understands that very well, we have explained it to her," Feygin said.
