Ukraine - Situation of Nadya Savchenko (April 13, 2016)


We are concerned about the deteriorating health of Nadya Savchenko, who has been on a dry hunger strike for eight days.

On March 22, Nadya Savchenko was sentenced to 22 years in prison by a Russian court.

We call on the Russian authorities to abide by their international commitments, including the Minsk agreements, and immediately release Ms. Savchenko.

We also call on Russia to urgently authorize the international medical assistance requested by Nadya Savchenko.
