A protester shouts in front of the Russian embassy in Kiev on March 6, 2016, during a rally to support and demand the release from jail of the hunger-striking Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko. The pilot, who this week rejected food and water to protest delays in her controversial murder trial in Russia, is in "satisfactory condition," her lawyer said on Sunday. Nadiya Savchenko, 34, is demanding she be repatriated to Ukraine after a judge in the southern Russian town of Donetsk on Thursday unexpectedly postponed her final address to court as her trial over the 2014 killing of two Russian journalists in east Ukraine nears an end.
