"I visited Nadiia Savchenko in jail. She feels better now. She only complains that she is slowly recovering after a dry hunger strike," he elaborated on the condition of the Ukrainian hostage held by Russia.
"We were filling in the statements required for her extradition to Ukraine according to the Convention. We were choosing language carefully. Nadiia rejected a number of examples of wordings proposed in the statements and replaced them by her own. All the statements were addressed to Federal Penitentiary Service Director Kornienko. We discussed the provisions of the Convention on extradition and its consequences. Nadiia performed everything she was required and now the date of her release depends entirely on the authorities' agility," the lawyer wrote.
Polozov also told Nadiia about the attempt to arrest her sister Vira and the fact that she was put on the wanted list.
"Nadiia was not aware about the incident and was extremely outraged. It took great pains to persuade her not to make hasty actions in this regard. She wrote a statement in this connection. I conveyed to Nadiia all the words of support, which were sent to me for her. She thanked everyone for the kind words. I am going to visit Nadiia on her birthday, May 11, next time," Polozov summed up.
