On 30 January, Commissioner for Human Rights in Russia visited the Medical Sanitary Unit No. 77 of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia (‘Matrosskaya Tishina’ remand centre in Moscow), where Nadezhda Savchenko was transferred to for her hunger strike.

Since Ms Savchenko has been refusing to take food for a long time, the FPS of Russia decided to transfer her from the remand centre (SIZO No. 6 of the Moscow Directorate of the Russian Federal Penitentiary Service) to the hospital for additional medical examination and follow-up.

For reference: on 13 December 2014 Nadezhda Savchenko went on hunger strike, having said that she would stop it only when released and retuned to Ukraine.
