Igor Klevko, the Belarusian military volunteer who is retained in Mariupol investigation isolation since February in suspect of kidnapping and intentional homicide of the citizen of Mangush. He launched the hunger strike demanding for the change of measure of restraint. Valentyna Sokolova, common-law wife of Klevko reported this to Radio Liberty.

‘At first, he threatened with dry hunger strike but then he agreed for the hunger strike with water’, she said.

According to her, Igor Klevko was transferred 5 times from one ward to another. Sokolova emphasized that the volunteer needs additional examination after the surgery of the injured leg. 

‘He has a lot of chronic illness that became sharper. But there is no treatment and the investigation isolation facility writes the so-called formal replies that he receives the necessary treatment’, she added. 

Igor Klevko’s advocates appealed to the Donetsk Region Court of Appeal with the complaint of the prolongation of the arrest until July 23. However, the court session on this issue was postponed until June 6. The Belarusian military volunteer does not admit the guilt.
