‘Freedom to bloody tsar’s hostages’: Belarusians hold action in support of Savchenko


Up to 15 persons have taken part in the action of support of Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko at the Russian embassy in Minsk.

The Ukrainian aviatrix continues ‘dry’ hunger-striking: she is refusing food and drink. Today the Russian court has announced that the final verdict will be given on March 21-22.

On March 3, Nadiya Savchenko was to have delivered her last plea in Donetsk City Court, Russia’s Rostov region, but the judge adjourned the hearing until March 9. In her turn, Savchenko went on a hunger strike.
