According to Tsegolko, Poroshenko has verbally expressed his support to Savchenko who is illegally detained in the Russian Federation.

"The president asked Savchenko's sister Vira and her mother to express his words of encouragement to Nadia. But he didn't send any letters," Tsegolko said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Savchenko's lawyer Mark Feygin tweeted on Thursday that Nadia had stopped her 'dry' hunger strike at the request of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.
