Russian human rights activist Nikolai Shchur received a letter from the illegally convicted Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov in Russia. Political prisoner wrote that he feels better than a month ago, Shchur noted on Facebook.
“I feel better than a month ago, much better. Analyses results, of course, are not good, but not bad as they used to be. Putting on IVs, also completed at the end of last week. Now, basically, diet, observation and pills. So do not worry particularly - I survived,” the human rights activist quotes Sentsov.
On October 31, the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia stated that the Ukrainian political prisoner, Oleg Sentsov, was taking ordinary food, which the doctors recommended to him, and is under their supervision.
Meanwhile, on October 26, Sentsov asked to publish his testament.
Sentsov stopped the hunger strike on October 5. The filmmaker has been on a hunger strike since May 14, 2018, demanding the release of all Ukrainian political prisoners in Russia and the Crimea.
On August 25, 2015, the North-Caucasian District Military Court sentenced Sentsov to 20 years' imprisonment in a high-security penal colony. He was accused of allegedly plotting a terrorist attack.
