From a member of the Permanent Delegation of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine in PACE
Savchenko Nadiya Viktorivna
I ask you to facilitate and send to the Russian Federation [RF] an independent commission of doctors from Ukraine, Germany, and other countries willing to participate in my examination in Russian prisons. I also ask you to make an effort to ensure unimpeded visitation by doctors of the independent commission to SIZO-1, where I am held in Russia.
I ask to create this commission for my examination because my life is at risk after losing up to 55-50 kilograms [121-110 lbs].
I emphatically forbid forcibly removing me from the hunger strike on the territory of Russia, because the Russian government and the Investigative Committee of the RF want to conceal the results of crimes against me on the Russian [territory], in the event of an unsuccessful attempt to end my hunger strike and my [subsequent] death.
I allow my removal from the hunger strike and my rehabilitation only in hospitals of Ukraine or another European country.
I ask you to create this commission under the auspices of PACE with OSCE observers.
I will continue my hunger strike until the day I am back in Ukraine or until the day of my death in Russia, because I was illegally kidnapped from the territory of Ukraine, [I was] illegally taken, against my will, to Russia; [I was] illegally detained in Russian prisons in the presence of an alibi and false accusation of crimes I have not committed.
