Doctors examined Ukrainian director and political prisoner Oleg Sentsov who is now in Russian prison. This was reported by the press service of the regional department of the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN).
A series of clinical and instrumental examinations were conducted during the consultation of the doctors of the city hospital in Labytnanga, and recommendations were given "for further treating of the patient."
There is no information on the state of health of Sentsov yet.
Illegally sentenced to 20 years in prison in Russia, Ukrainian director Oleg Sentsov announced an unlimited hunger strike on May 14. His main requirement is to release all Ukrainians, political prisoners who are in Russian prisons.
Ukrainians Kolchenko and Sentsov were detained by special services of the Russian Federation in May 2014 in Crimea. They were accused of organizing terrorist attacks on the peninsula. In the summer of 2015 Kolchenko was sentenced to 10 years in a strict-regime colony, Sentsov - 20 years. Both deny their guilt.
According to the reporter, the aim of the event was to draw attention to the illegally convicted Ukrainian political prisoners kept in Russia.
“Within the two-hour action, the participants of the action plan to read 8 autobiographical fictions written by Oleg Sentsov. The organizers expect 30-40 people to join the action,” the reporter added.
At the same time, Ukrinform reported that Ahtem Seytablayev, a Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar actor, Andriy Khlyvnyuk, the leader of Bumboks, a Ukrainian band, Rimma Zyubina, a Ukrainian actress, have already joined the protest.
“It is not about “why you came”. One should remind all the people, primarily, oneself,” Seytablayev stated.
