MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Feygin earlier posted the letter Poroshenko allegedly sent to Savchenko, where the president emphasized his support for her and pleaded that she stop refusing food and liquids for the sake of her health.
“This morning the Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office and I became the object of an extremely shameless special operation. In order to discredit Nadezhda in regard to her food strike, a fake letter from the Ukrainian president was given to Nad[ezhda],” Mark Feygin said on his Twitter account.
Savchenko is suspected of helping to direct artillery fire near the eastern Ukrainian city of Lugansk on June 17, 2014, that led to the deaths of two Russian journalists, Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin.
The 34-year-old woman, is facing up to 25 years in prison if convicted. The sentencing by a Russian court in the southern Russian region of Rostov-on-Don has been scheduled for March 21-22.
