SIMFEROPOL / AQMESCIT (QHA) -

The prisoner of the Kremlin, Crimean resident Volodymyr Balukh, has severe liver pain, the Crimean Human Rights Group reports, referring to the lawyer of the political prisoner.

It is noted that Volodymyr Balukh continues to lose weight, he is not provided with the necessary medical care.

“Volodymyr had an attack of severe pains in the liver, he continues to lose weight. Now the Ukrainian is in a cell with constant video surveillance. Balukh believes that even a toilet gets in the camera's view.”

Previously, Balukh's mother Natalia reported that the political prisoner almost did not take food, sometimes has a strach drink, eats oatmeal and dried bread.

Reference: Volodymyr Balukh is a Crimean farmer, who hung out a Ukrainian flag on his house in 2014, which was repeatedly ripped off by Crimean security officials. In November 2016 Volodymyr attached to his house a sign with the inscription "18, Heroes of Heavenly Hundred Street”. According to him, he then started receiving threats from local “administration” saying that if he did not remove it, then some drugs or weapons could be found in his house, which in fact has happened.

The Russian-controlled Razdolnensky District Court sentenced Volodymyr Balukh to 5 years in a general-regime colony and fined 10,000 rubles (about 4,000 hryvnia).
