Savchenko's lawyer Mark Feygin posted her appeal on his Twitter, Joinfo.ua reports.

In her address on the eve of the meeting of Moscow's Basmanny District Court, to be held on March 26, Savchenko underlined that doctors from prison did not want to allow her to go to the court because of her poor health. "They force me to stop the hunger strike. I'm tired of the fact that Russia is constantly judging me without me!" said Nadiya.

"I will not stop the hunger strike until my restraint is changed at least to house arrest at the Consulate of Ukraine in Russia. Only there I'll start eating. And it's out of the question," she said.

Moreover, Savchenko again added that she was unguilty of all those crimes the Russian Investigation Committee was accusing her.

It should be recalled that March 16,  Savchenko resumed her hunger strike  in Moscow prison. She suspended the strike for 10 days, and then said she would starve until her return to Ukraine.
