Starving Ukrainian Pilot Jailed in Russia Promises to Consider Ending Strike

Amid reports that Savchenko was on the verge of death after an 80-day hunger strike, lawyer Mark Feygin said Tuesday via Twitter: "At least I have managed to get her word that when things get completely terrible, she will listen and stop. That's what she said."
