Ukrainians staged a rally in central square of Kyiv today to show support for Nadezhda Savchenko, a Ukrainian pilot and MP, who announced a dry hunger strike because she was denied the last word in Russian court.

Concerned residents of the capital are chanting "Freedom to Savchenko!" holding Ukrainian national flags. The activists have also brought the Putin's effigy hanging from the gallows.

According to a QHA correspondent, the protesters are planning to move to the Russian Embassy building.
