The Ukrainian aviatrix Nadiia Savchenko, who is held in a Russian prison, is not going to stop the hunger strike even though it threatens her life.

She said an interview to Mikhail Khodorkovsky's Open Russia website, answering the question on the extent of her hunger strike, Censor.NET reports.

"I had been in two wars, and I am ready to die in the name of justice. Your Prime Minister Medvedev said that if they cut off the SWIFT system, Russia is ready for all sorts of measures. I am also ready for all sorts of measures. I am holding by the will power. I will go to the end," she said.

Savchenko acknowledged that the hunger strike had no effect on the Russian authorities and is not yet effective. "Irresistible force met the immovable object," she said.

Savchenko stated that she intended to write a letter to the chief physician of the jail that she would consider possible force-feeding a torture.

The journalist notes that the aviatrix herself is held in the newly renovated, freshly painted special block of the hospital and is taken for walks to the exercise yard guarded by a dog.

The office next to her holds video surveillance with a special jail employee. Savchenko has been on hunger strike since Dec. 13, 2014, demanding her release. Her life is supported with medicine droppers.

According to her sister, her blood formula and tests are becoming worse.

The next court session regarding her case will be held on Feb. 10. The refusal to release Savchenko, who is also a deputy of the Verkhovna Rada and a delegate of Ukraine to PACE, led to the deprivation of the Russian delegation of the right to vote in the organization.

Savchenko is accused of involvement in the murder of two Russian journalists, despite the evidence that she had been kidnapped before their death.
