Entering her 67th day of hunger strike in protest of being kidnapped and tried under unfair charges, Nadiya Savchenko says she will not end it until she is on Ukrainian territory and can last without food up to 99 days. Russian officials claim that the Minsk Agreements, while calling for the exchange of all hostages, do not provide for the release of the imprisoned Ukrainian pilot. Semyon Gluzman, a Soviet dissident imprisoned in labor camps in the late 1970’s-early 1980’s told about how his hunger strikes of 112 and 114 days and how he stopped them, how hunger strikes in the West and Soviet Union differed, and why Putin has driven himself into a corner with Savchenko.
