The Basmanny District Court, Moscow (Russia) extended the detention of the Ukrainian military serviceman Nadiya Savchenko until May, 13 . According to the attorneys, if Savchenko remains in detention, she will not survive until May 13, as the hunger strike declared by the defendant by way of protest has been going on for two months now.

Nadiya shouted “Ukraine will win! Glory to Ukraine!” as she was led to the courtroom. The crowd responded with applause and shouts of “Glory to the heroes!”

Thank you for shining a light on these terrible happenings in your country. Our news media haven’t said anything about Nadiya Savchenko. My heart breaks for her, for her mother and for her country.
thanks Elaine for your kind heart, here in Ukraine we are reallly suffering now from all this happenings…
I send you all my best and hopeful thoughts from Brighton. I can’t imagine how it is for you there in the Ukraine, except that it must be terrible, but I hope the nightmare comes to a positive end very soon. Things will get better.
Nadia you were well named.
You so capably represent the hope of a nation of 40 million people to stand on their own feet – make their own decisions – celebrate their own culture – and be known to the world as a free and sovereign nation – that you have to make that point with your own life is tragic!! You are a shining light which will burn bright forever as a symbol of bravery – dignity – patriotism – and that which is good in humanity in the face of tyranny and oppression – which will never win.
