Nadiya Savchenko agrees to undergo supporting therapy
Ukrainian military pilot and MP Nadiya Savchenko, who has been refusing to take food and water for almost a week, agreed to be examined by doctors.
'Savchenko gave her written consent to the regular medical examinations and began to receive supporting therapy,' according to the Federal Penitentiary Service's press office.
Ukrainian pilot's state of health is estimated as 'stable and satisfactory, she is under the regular supervision of the medical staff.'
Earlier this week, Russian penitentiary officers announced they intend to force Savchenko to start drinking water.
Nadiya Savchenko's sister, Vira informed that Ukrainian consuls were finally permitted to visit Nadiya on Monday, April 11.
Nadiya Savchenko is currently undergoing the sixth day of her full hunger strike, protesting her abduction from Ukraine and illegal conviction.
