Arrested journalist from Odessa is near to loose her baby

Odessa journalist and political prisoner Elena Glischinskaya is pregnant and has almost lost the baby. On this ground she asked the court to release her from custody.
“I categorically object to the “automatic” extension of my detention, as it has been done already the eighth month – she said in the petition. – The Court did not consider the case in fact, does not account for all the factors, such as health, family and social situation.”
Glischinskaya was arrested in May 2015, and, as it turned out, she was pregnant shortly before her arrest. In prison her health condition deteriorated rapidly. October 21 she started bleeding. She was taken to the race. They found that there is a threat of termination of pregnancy, and recommended an urgent hospitalization. However, the police returned her to jail. December 14 she started bleeding again, but an ambulance was not admitted to her until the next day. Ambulance diagnosed “placental abruption”. Doctors appointed her to bed until February 2016. Instead, she has to travel to court hearings and sit all day in the cold concrete basement of the court.
“My guilt is proved, the investigation is long over, but I’m in inhumane conditions and subjected to constant humiliation of human dignity, – she wrote in the petition. – I’m not in a position to evade trial or investigation, I just need the human condition in order to attend the court session without jeopardizing my life and my child. ”
Glischinskaya also points out that none of the witnesses did confirm the information about her illegal activities. From the first day of her arrest by the state security she is under its constant pressure. Thus, at each interrogation they openly declared that she would sit up for as long as the investigation does not give the necessary evidence in relation to the people’s deputy of Ukraine, whose assistant she worked.
The prosecutor’s office imposes Glischinskaya conducting subversive activities against Ukraine, the impact on public opinion in order to reduce the authority of the current government and the attack on the territorial integrity of the country.
“I have eight months in jail, but dissatisfaction with the power keeps growing, the economy falls, and Crimea and Donbas still are not willing to return to the Ukraine. So can I not in the case? Maybe it does not me who am doing subversion, and the perpetrators are based in Kiev, in government positions?” – Glischinskaya asks.
