Today, 09.29.2015, Nikolai Polozov, one of Nadiya Savchenko’s three lawyers, tweeted this letter Nadiya wrote before the second court appearance of her trial in which she gives testimony:

Meanwhile, outside the court building, this brave woman was found in a (legal) solo picket of the trial. Her name is Yana Goncharova and she came to the Donetsk, Russia courtroom to support Nadiya from Rostov, Russia. This is extraordinary when you take into account that Rostov is the staging ground for recruit preparation before entering Ukraine for troop rotations in Russia’s invasion.

Oleg Mezentsev: “Now, at the courtroom in Donetsk, Rostov region [Russia]. A single picket in support of Nadiya.”

The front of her shirt says: “I’m not afraid.” The back says: “Why raise a new generation of slaves?” and she’s holding up a huge poster that says “Freedom for Nadiya Savchenko” with recognizable images of Nadiya by a well known Ukrainian artist.
