She will continue fighting until the verdict, which is expected to be delivered on March 21-22.

Demonstrators in the Ukrainian city of Odessa have burned a dummy of Russian President Vladimir Putin in protest against the trial of Ukrainian pilot Nadezhda Savchenko, local online news site reported Wednesday.
The dummy — with the face of Putin depicted as Adolf Hitler — was burned by the protesters in front of the Russian consulate....

One has to question Putin's large-scale tactics. He is just building up more and more hate against Russia, Russians, and all things Russian.
Putin has a Stalin brain, and believes fear makes people comply. This is not the case in countries like Ukraine where freedom reigns.
Russia itself, of course, is a different matter. The Russian people are mere peasants, scared to do anything. North Korea II in the making.
"Her unlawful continuing detention is a clear violation of Russia's commitment under the Minsk agreements, and she should be freed at once," Biden said in a statement posted on the White House.

"Nadia has been unjustly imprisoned in Russia since 2014—detained and facing trial on trumped up charges. Nadia was proudly serving her country as a member of the Ukrainian armed forces, fighting in the eastern part of the country when she was abducted by separatists and taken across the border against her will," the vice president said.

He called on Russia to drop all charges against Savchenko and release her at once..........

Ukrainian pilot and parliament deputy Nadia Savchenko has told a Russian court she will continue her dry hunger strike after a tense hearing in which the judge postponed the verdict in her closely watched case until March 21.

A defiant Savchenko declared that she would recognize neither the court nor its verdict, before she stood on a bench inside the cage for defendants and raised her middle finger in the direction of the judge.

Savchenko emphasized that she is willing to continue the no-food, no-water hunger strike no matter what happens, saying, "You must understand that we are playing with my life; the stakes are high and I have nothing to lose."

She also said a popular uprising similar to Ukraine's Euromaidan movement is inevitable in Russia, adding that Russian President Vladimir Putin "cannot hold on to power by means of people's blood."

Savchenko, 34, wore her trademark T-shirt with the Ukrainian trident symbol at the March 9 hearing in the court in the southern Russian city of Donetsk, near the border with the home country she has vowed to return to "dead or alive.".....................

CR@P report from the BBC, not for the first time.
I presume this is from "reporter" Sarah Rainsford, Moscow resident. No name attacked, not surprisingly. She gives the Moscow position first in the report.
Only later on do you read about her kidnapping (according to her, of course). Rainsford sits of the fence, to keep buddy with the Kremlin. Makes me puke.
Typical BBC cr@p. Phrases like -
"She is reported to...", and "She says she was kidnapped.... " Shaun Walker stuff.

The typical British reader will not realise that you could go to Russia as a tourist, spend 5 days looking at art in the Hermitage, and then be charged with spying and locked up for 60 years. That is Russia today.
Reminds me of Shaun Walker's report in the Guardian about the downing of MH17. "Maybe", "possibly"....

And those in the world with democratic values ought to learn their history lessons before it's too late and remember that there was a time when Europe was tolerant toward Hitler, and America wasn’t decisive enough, and this led to World War II. Putin is a tyrant with imperial manners and a Napoleon and Hitler complex put together....

Ukrainian aviatrix and MP Hope Savchenko during a court session in the Russian Donetsk on January 28, said it would announce a hunger strike, if it is removed from the courtroom.

According to BBC Ukraine, she said that after the judge made her remark, and said he would be forced to remove her from the hall.

Before he refused to file the testimony of a witness protection - official "Ukrtransnafta", basing its decision on the fact that documents presented in the Ukrainian language, while processes in Russia are conducted in Russian.

Savchenko answered loudly declared that it infringes its language rights.

In turn, the Ukrainian lawyers have promised on Monday, February 1, to submit these documents in Russian.

Earlier Savchenko, which is held in the Russian prison, wrote a letter in which he told about his health, and communication with the employees of the penitentiary.

According to her, during the hunger strike, her health condition deteriorated, she was constantly vomiting, dehydration occurred.

Previously, it stated that it would begin a hunger strike 10 days after sentencing. In Russian
Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin asked the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy to ensure the presence of Federico Mogherini European diplomats at the trial of aviatrix Savchenko Nadezhda in Russia.

Crimean Political Prisoners Oleg Sentsov & Oleksandr Kolchenko have passed letters of greetings and support to Nadiya Savchenko, whose trial resumed in the Russian city of Donetsk on Jan 13, Nadiya’s 27’th day on hunger strike. According to one of her lawyers, Ilya Novikov, the court has refused to allow videos and photography in the courtroom, probably because of mounting concern about the 34-year-old former military pilot, now Ukrainian MP’s health

Both letters, made public by Nadiya’s sister Vera, are brief but to the point. Oleksandr Kolchenko writes in Ukrainian with New Year and Christmas Greetings.

“I wish you the earliest release from this enemy captivity and for the moment – as much strength and resilience as possible. I am sure they can’t break you!.” He signs off “until we meet in Ukraine”.

“I wish you just one thing – freedom and victory. That may be two words but their meaning for us is one!.

Take care! I won’t try to persuade you to eat, you know what you’re doing, but I so don’t want you to suffer – they’re just not worth that! Glory to Ukraine!”

Nadiya Savchenko declared hunger strike on Dec 17 in protest at the latest extension of her detention. Her lawyer Nikolai Polozov has reported that she has lost 15 kilograms, and is experiencing pancreatic pain and nausea.

The lawyers also report that the court has once again refused to add evidence to the case, this time proving that Savchenko was taken by force from Ukraine to Russia with the active involvement of Igor Plotnytsky, now leader of the so-called ‘Luhansk people’s republic’ and Russian investigators, including FSB colonel Sergei Pochechuyev (more details about the appearance in court, wig and all, here: Savchenko Trial turns into Insultingly Absurd Pantomime ).

It is an indicator of the political nature of this ‘trial’ that evidence of Savchenko’s alibi and material showing up the prosecution’s case, has been consistently rejected by Leonid Stepanenko, the presiding judge

Nadiya Savchenko was taken prisoner in the morning of June 17, 2014, several hours before Voloshin and journalist Igor Kornelyuk came under mortar fire while reporting from an area in the Luhansk oblast where there was heavy fighting.

She was captured by Kremlin-backed militants who even posted a video of her being interrogated. It first became clear that she was in Russia when a court in the Voronezh oblast (nowhere near where the trial is now taking place) remanded her in custody.

For a long time the Russian investigators were silent about Savchenko’s abduction. Then they claimed that she had escaped and inexplicably crossed the border into Russia. The final version is that the militants themselves ‘released her’, after which she allegedly hurtled towards the Russian border, covering a huge distance in an hour and a half.

The investigators’ version is that she crossed the border illegally ‘pretending’ to be a refugee, and that she was stopped initially in a routine check of papers. The Investigative Committee responded with particular cynicism to the demand from the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (which Savchenko is now a delegate of) by adding another charge of having ‘crossed the border illegally’.

As mentioned the charges are now of murder and attempted murder. The prosecution has failed to find the binoculars with which Savchenko is supposed to have seen the journalists 3 and a half kilometres away and the equipment with which she is alleged to have informed Ukrainian soldiers of their whereabouts. And she has an alibi. ..............

At Hope Savchenko Ukrainian pilots because of the hunger strike started having problems with the pancreas. This was the TV channel «» the lawyer said Savchenko Ilya Novikov.

"We do not know from whom he takes (the ban to photograph - Ed.), But after we journalists have expressed strong protest, after they were allowed to take pictures of Hope. I have the opinion that the management of our vessels are simply afraid that people will see hope in its current state, pale, thin, it may be some kind of scandal, and they recently trying to avoid any scandals. They do not need it. But the scandal is still started, I took a picture of Hope, posted on the Internet, and everyone saw, might look like a man who is starving 4th week. It is not very good feeling, she began some problems with the pancreas, "- he said.

"We are concerned that under the pretext of this state, it may prohibit participation in further court hearing. It is scheduled for tomorrow (the next meeting, - Ed.). We are waiting for the main event, the main defenders of our work Savchenko Nadezhda, next week, when we can see the following two may be three witnesses, which we have not yet announced, but did not warn our process opponents ", - he said.

The verdict against Ukrainian people's deputy Nadiia Savchenko will not be delivered by Russian court prior to the session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.

Lawyer Nikolay Polozov said on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel, Censor.NET informs.

"At the moment, the defense is presenting evidence. We provide the proof of her innocence: both material evidence and the conclusion of experts. I believe that the presentation of evidence by the defense will take at least two meetings this week and, perhaps, several more meetings next week.

"After all this, we are likely to move on to the debate stage with a sentence to be passed afterwards. But taking into account that the session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, where Savchenko is to be present as a delegate, opens on Jan. 25, even if all hearings have ended by this date, it is unlikely that Russia will pass the sentence immediately before the session.
