Letter written by Nadiya Savchenko and given to her lawyer Mark Feygin:
“Russian feed won’t do much good to a Ukrainian horse!”
I tried… But it [food] just won’t go down!
I can’t force the food down my throat when after eating a measly 100 grams of cheese, 20 grams of butter and 30 grams of sugar, you have to make a written statement that I did eat all that. It is as if they are collecting these statements like receipts, to bill Ukraine for the “expensive” upkeep of their people’s deputy!
Food sticks in your throat when you have to eat under the eye of three prison wardens and a doctor, and three video cameras rolling! And then they bring the scales and weigh you after every meal, as if you’re expected to gain a kilogram after eating 100 grams of food!
I cannot stomach Russian food! Even their water and air are poison to me!
I’ve become allergic – no-one can say to what, and no-one can cure it. All they can do is shove me with medicines. Maybe I’m allergic to Russia? To prison?!
I weigh 50 kg, sugar level 2.8, blood pressure 90×50, temperature 35.8.
I am being transferred from prison to the guarded department of a municipal hospital, with bargaining and agreements that I will start eating at least something once there…
I don’t know… I’m not sure I can force anything down…
Please don’t write me letters asking me to live and eat. Hunger is the only weapon I have to fight the lawlessness of Russian authorities. So don’t ask me to lay it down!
Free birds cannot live in prison! And in a foreign land, one can die from missing Ukraine alone.
Still alive! Always fighting!
