According to the Federal Penitentiary Service, Savchenko was transferred to the 20-th city hospital for further observation, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to the press service of the FPS.

However, Ilya Novikov, a lawyer of Nadiya, informs that at the moment they don't know about the place of her location. "Yesterday it was announced the final decision to transfer Nadiya to the city hospital. And at the moment when a person is transferred from one place to another, they disappear from all radars. I mean, when we arrive to the detention center, we are told that she was already taken away from here, and when we arrive to the hospital, we are told that she is not here yet. So we have to search for her, we have already faced such problem. We hope that tomorrow she will be in the hospital. Other will we will have to visit some number of institutions," Novikov says to Hromadske.tv.

"Savchenko's state of health is satisfactory," said Kristina Belousova, the representative of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia.

She also added that since yesterday Nadiya Savchenko began to take food.

It should be recalled that Nadiya Savchenko accused by the Russian authorities of involvement in the death of Russian journalists, has been in the Russian prison since the summer of 2014. In mid-December last year, she declared a hunger strike, demanding to deliver her back home. In early March, Savchenko softened her hunger strike, but then announced the extension of the protest.
