UK Ministry of Foreign Affairs calls on Russia to immediately release the Ukrainian political prisoner Nadiya Savchenko, according to a statement by Minister of Great Britain for European Affairs David Lidington.

- I am deeply concerned by reports that Nadiya Savchenko’s health is seriously deteriorating. She has now refused food and water for 7 days in protest against her illegal detention in Russia, flawed trial, judgment and sentence, reads a statement.

British Minister once again demanded from the Russian Federation "to urgently fulfill its international obligations, including under the Minsk Agreements, and release Ms Savchenko immediately."

Lidington also called on the Kremlin to permit international medical team to provide first aid to Savchenko.
