Ukrainian Pilot Savchenko To Be Sentenced March 21-22; Continues Dry Hunger Strike, Suffers Heart Trouble
The live feed has picked up again, and Mark Feygin, Savchenko's lawyer, spoke to reporters. Reporters are now outside the courtroom.
Translation: Nadiya's final speech was the most impressive event that I have ever seen. And I've seen a lot. #FreeSavchenko

 Translation: March 21-22 at 11:00, the sentence will be given.

Part of Savchenko's final speech and gesture of defiance can be seen on this video.

"Until Savchenko hears coherently that she will be returned to Ukraine ...we will not likely be unable to persuade her to end the hunger strike," said Mark Feygin.

Savchenko's other attorney, Nikolai Polozov, says she is suffering fever and tachycardia induced from the hunger strike and they are very concerned about her health

Translation: Nadiya says she has a fever, her temperature is about 38 degrees Celcius. But she is determined to speak in court no matter what.
