Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov is not going to end hunger strike and intends to go to the end, said Anatoly Sak, a Human Rights Commissioner in the Yamalo-Nenets district of the Russian Federation, who visited the Kremlin prisoner in jail.
According to Sak, Sentsov also does not intend to ask the Russian President for pardon. He noted that the meeting with Sentsov lasted for half an hour.
“The Ukrainian film-maker does not plan to stop the hunger strike and intends to go to the end. Moreover, he will not personally ask President Vladimir Putin for pardon.”
At the same time, the Human Rights Commissioner stated that Sentsov on the 116th day of his hunger strike "looks quite healthy."
“As a person in fasting, he looks quite healthy. He is adequate and generally calm. He receives medical assistance on a voluntary basis. When I came to him, he was just on fluids.”
Earlier, the Russian Ombudsperson Tatyana Moskalkova said that fasting Sentsov "is active and goes to watch TV." She sent a Ukrainian colleague Sentsov's photos from the prison, which reality caused some doubts. In particular, the lawyer of the political prisoner, Dmitry Dinze, wrote in his comments to the photographs: "It's even worse in life, believe me."
Earlier in a letter to activist "AvtoMaydan" Oleksiy Hritsenko Oleg Sentsov wrote that he lost weight qand went down to 72 kg.
Meanwhile, the picket in support of the Ukrainian political prisoner was held outside the building of the RF Presidential Administration. The activists went out with the posters "Sentsov 116", indicating the period of the ongoing hunger strike.
Reportedly, the Ukrainian political prisoners will be nominated for the Sakharov Prize in 2018.
