Ukrainian political prisoner Oleg Sentsov, after ending the hunger strike, keeps a special diet, the Deputy Director of the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) of Russia Valery Maksimenko informed, as cited by TASS.
“For example, this morning for breakfast he had oatmeal, dairy products, including yogurt, steamed meat balls. For lunch - soup with potatoes and meat broth with pieces of beef, as a second course - mashed potatoes with steam beef, vegetables and jelly. For dinner - fish souffle with poached diet sauce, buckwheat porridge, salad of grated carrots, sweet tea and biscuits. For brunch - a glass of kefir,” he noted.
According to Maksimenko, Sentsov has allegedly almost regained his weight, which he had before the hunger strike, and now weighs 80.2 kilograms.
“We regard his condition as stable and good, I would even say, as satisfactory.”
At the same time, according to the FSIN, the health of the political prisoner is supported by medication.
“Doctors are satisfied with the process of recovery. He remains under the co under medical supervision, they believe that the hunger strike was ended more than on time, this allowed to avoid possible irreversible processes.”
Earlier, October 16, Oleg Sentsov’s cousin Natalya Kaplan said that state of his health was very difficult and, at the moment, no one can tell whether he will survive. At the same time, almost all internal organs were affected during his hunger strike.
Previously, the Commissioner for Human Rights of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Lyudmila Denisova said that Oleg Sentsov had stopped the hunger strike. According to her, such a move means that the political prisoner was in a critical condition.
The political prisoner himself explained why he had to end his hunger strike, which he held for more than 140 days. According to Sentsov, forced feeding was to be applied, since he allegedly was no longer able to adequately assess his level of health and the risk he was facing.
