Former Ukrainian political prisoners Yuriy Soloshenko and Hennadiy Afanasyev are now in moderately grave conditions. Olexandr Naumenko, Chief of Anesthesiology and Intensive Therapy Department of the Centre for Prophylactic and Clinical Medicine, said this as quoted by nv.ua.
According to him, full diagnostics of both patients is being run now. After the examination, a plan of their treatment will be designed. Both patients are now undergoing psychological rehabilitation.
As 112 International reported, on June 14, Ukrainians Yuriy Soloshenko and Hennadiy Afanasyev were released from Russian detention and exchanged on two pro-Kremlin journalists charged with separatism.
Ukrainian activist Hennadiy Afanasyev was detained in Crimea in May 2014. Russian law enforcers arrested him on charges of ‘terrorism’.
Yuriy Soloshenko, Ukrainian businessman, was detained in 2015 in Russia. Moscow city court found him guilty of industrial espionage and sentenced to six years of imprisonment in high-security penal colony.
Previously, doctors found out that Soloshenko has cancer and Afanasyev has furunculosis, which might lead to septic fever.
