The prisoner of the Kremlin, Oleg Sentsov, continues to receive the injections, he uses a supportive mixture, according to the response of the Russian Federation Human Rights Commissioner Tatiana Moskalkova, received by the Ukrainian ombudsperson Lyudmila Denisova.
According to Moskalkova, the state of health of Sentsov [who has been on a hunger strike for about 120 days - Ed.] has not deteriorated. Moskalkova noted that Sentsov refused hospitalization in the city hospital.
“Finally received a response from the Russian Commissioner to one of my numerous appeals about the health of Oleg Sentsov. Tatyana Moskalkova informs that Oleg's health condition did not deteriorate. He continues to receive the injections, as well as provided with a supportive mixture. Oleg again refused hospitalization in the city hospital. He allegedly refers to the absence of illness and the satisfactory conditions of maintenance and treatment in the medical unit of the colony. But we all well know the true reason for his refusal. Because it is terrible in the city hospital. He is not given proper medical care and psychologically pressured.”
Concerning the issue of exchange, Moskalkova said that she didn't have that kind of authority.
"Too bad that the detailed information on the health of Oleg Sentsov and other political prisoners with corresponding supporting documents was not provided," Denisova summed up.
Earlier, in Tallinn, a picket was held demanding to release Oleg Sentsov and other Ukrainian political prisoners in the Russian Federation. Participants of the action were holding the poster "Putin is the devil".
And in Moscow, near the Kiev station in the Square of Europe, a banner was brought in support of Sentsov.
Anatoliy Sak, an Ombudsman for Human Rights in the Yamalo-Nenets District of the Russian Federation, who visited a prison where the Kremlin prisoner was held, said that Sentsov did not plan to stop the hunger strike and intends to go to the end.
