Ukrainian army officer Savchenko terminates hunger strike

Nadiya Savchenko, Ukrainian army officer imprisoned in Moscow, has terminated her 80-day hunger strike. After spending 2.5 months on glucosis and amino acid injections only, Savchenko has agreed to eat chicken broth on March 5. In a letter she passed with her lawyer she explains that she will be eating the broth “for some time” to survive.

Earlier Savchenko has said she will not stop the strike until the Russian court changes her detention to house arrest. She attributes the change of mind to the support she’s been receiving.
