Declaration

I, Savchenko Nadiya Viktorivna, have made a final decision in regards to appealing against the verdict of the Donetsk Municipal Court in my case. I will not file an appeal because I see no point in doing that, and I do not recognize the verdict passed on me as either legitimate or just.

Declaration

I, Savchenko Nadiya Viktorivna, a Ukrainian, a citizen of Ukraine, Member of the Parliament of Ukraine, PACE delegate, was kidnapped by Russian Special Services from the territory of Ukraine, taken into the Russian Federation by force and against my will, and illegally detained in Russian prisons. I am not guilty of anything and I do not recognize the verdict of the Russian court.

As protest against the criminal actions of the Russian authorities against me and against Ukraine, I declare a dry hunger strike for an indefinite term, starting from April 6, 2016. I demand my immediate return to Ukraine! I forbid my transfer  to anywhere other than to Ukraine! I demand that my transfer is only carried out in the presence of representatives of the Ukrainian side, the Consul of Ukraine in Rostov, or my lawyers M. Z. Feygin, N.N. Polozov, and I.S. Novikov!

I forbid any [medical] examination, observation, or tests by prison doctors or any doctors from the Russian Federation! I demand to be immediately examined by Ukrainian or European doctors!

I forbid any forced termination of my dry hunger strike, and to be moved anywhere from my cell, except to be returned to Ukraine! Any use of physical force or moral coercion against me I will view as torture, and will put up resistance!

I forbid to be isolated, and demand to be allowed short visits from my family – my mother Savchenko Mariya Ivanivna and my sister Savchenko Vira Viktorivna – as well as my deputy assistant Mezentsev Oleh Vitaliyevich, Consuls of Ukraine, my lawyers, and representatives of Russian and international public monitoring committees!
