I wonder whether Yulka in Ukrainka will show some solidarity.
Certainly, she could lose some weight.

Those Russian prisoners are having a hunger strike, not because of grievences, but because they have not been fed real food for months at a time. Geez !!! A steady diet of one bowl of pearl barley soup per week would make any person hungary. The prison is rat and cockroach free. The inmates ate them to keep from starving.
You're right 100%.
