Ukraine’s Ombudsman Lyudmyla Denisova reported that she suggested to Russian authority to let the independent doctors examine Kyrylo Vyshynsky,  the former Head of RIA News arrested in Ukraine, and Pavlo Gryb, Ukrainian political prisoner detained in Russia at the same time. Denisov wrote on Facebook.

“I applied to Tatyana Moskalkova, the Commissioner for Human Rights of Russia, in order to let the independent doctors examine Kyrylo Vyshynsky and Pavlo Gryb at the same time”, Denisova wrote.

According to the ombudsman, she found out that  Moskalkova wants to provide Kyrylo Vyshynsky with doctors during the meeting with the Luk Devin, the Director of the European External Action Service of the EU together with the Eastern Partnership States and the Russian Federation, in Brussels.

“I wrote I’m not against this, but providing they let doctors examine Pavlo Gryb as well, who is in the very critical condition”, - Denisova added.

Ukraine’s Ombudsman Lyudmyla Denisova is still waiting for the answer.

As we reported earlier, Pavlo Gryb is the son of the former Ukrainian border guard Ihor Gryb. The Russian special service detained the 19-year-old boy on August 25, 2017, when he went to Gomel (Belarus) to meet his friend. Later, he was convoyed to Russia. The Russian law enforcers suspect Pavlo Gryb of preparing a terrorist attack at a school in Sochi (a city in Krasnodar Krai, Russia, located on the Black Sea coast, - 112 International).

Russia did not provide the European Court of Human Rights with information about the Ukrainian political prisoner Pavlo Gryb's health status.

Pavlo Gryb was not allowed to see his mother and the Ukrainian consul. Russia promises to give permission to the meeting with the consul, but only after the verdict. Yet, the consular convention signed between Ukraine and Russia does not provide for such refusal.

Denisova assured she would appeal to the representatives of the Council of Europe to get permission for meeting with the consul before the verdict is announced.
