Savchenko left under arrest, pilot goes on indefinite hunger strike

The Moscow City Court has upheld the decision to extend the arrest of Ukrainian pilot Nadia Savchenko and left her behind bars until February 13, 2015.
Such a decision was taken at a court meeting on Monday, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.
Savchenko was not taken to the courtroom, so she had to use a video conference and interpreter.
She also declared an indefinite hunger strike until she is released or until she dies.
“I had to go on a hunger strike to make sure that they start treating me in jail. Now, there is evidence of my innocence. Investigators have this evidence, but investigators continue to tell me lies. If this position continues in the future, if investigators continue to delay the time and not to do their job and if the verdict does not change today, I will declare an indefinite hunger strike until I return to Ukraine or until the last day of my life in Russia. Hunger is not a method of suicide, this is a method of struggle,” the pilot said.
