Media: Savchenko agrees to be put on a drip until April 20
Ukrainian pilot and MP Nadia Savchenko has agreed to be put on a intravenous drip daily to keep alive, but has stressed that she agreed to the procedure only until April 20, according to the TSN news program.
Savchenko said that after the specified date she wanted to know the exact date of her return to her homeland.
The report said that Savchenko was persuaded to get intravenous injections by her sister Vira, who was finally allowed to see Nadia after being denied the visit for three days.
"She feels like a living corpse. She's got bitterness in her mouth and constant thirst. Nadia said that she is constantly thirsty. She is keeping her mind off this by making origami..." Vira Savchenko said.
On March 22, 2016, the Donetsk Court of the Rostov region sentenced Savchenko to 22 years in a penal colony. The sentence went into effect on April 5. The next day, Savchenko began a dry hunger strike, demanding an immediate return to her homeland.
