Negotiations on Savchenko's return to Ukraine still ongoing
The health of Nadiya Savchenko, Ukrainian pilot convicted and imprisoned in Russia, is better, according to her lawyer Ilya Novikov who managed to visit her on Wednesday.
However, she still has "abnormal reactions such as freezing hands and fever," Novikov said.
The Ukrainian pilot requested to receive medical assistance from Ukrainian or international doctors and has repeatedly refused to be treated at a Russian hospital. At the same time, the Federal Penitentiary Service insists on Savchenko's hospitalization.
Nadiya Savchenko's sister Vira is expected to visit her on Thursday.
Ilya Novikov has previously reported about the ongoing negotiation on Savchenko's transfer to Ukraine and "new prospects" of the current situation.
