The debates on the case of Ukrainian political prisoner Pavlo Gryb has begun at North Caucasus Military court, Rostov-on-Don, Russia as Hromadske reported.
Gryb notes that he feels bad and he is not provided with proper medical assistance.
“Since the last session, when I became ill, nobody did anything; I am taken here and they tell that I am healthy. I ask you to postpone the session. I should not sit and suffer from illnesses here,” Gryb said.
It is reported that Ukrainian political prisoner complains about nausea and pain.
Gryb reported that he was taken to the separate room in the morning to look at his documents – “I have nothing special there. The applications, appeals, the final statement,” he added.
According to the prisoner, his case is exclusively political.
“I think it is politics. I think when this case was opened, nobody thought that it will happen in such a way,” Gryb noted.
Earlier, Ukrainian political prisoner Pavlo Gryb was taken to the court session with a fever.
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.
