Ukrainian political prisoner, movie maker Oleg Sentsov sent a letter to human rights activists, in which he revealed his current health conditions. Nikolai Shchur, human rights activist from Chelyabinsk Oblast (central Russia), posted this on Facebook.

'I feel better - much better than I did a month ago. My lab tests are not very good yet, but not as bad as they were before. They stopped the IVU infusions last week; now it's mostly diet, medical supervision, and pills... So, don't worry too much over there, I survived,' Sentsov wrote. 

The letter dates back to October 29.

Russia's Interfax news agency quoted Valeriy Maksimenko, Deputy Head of the Russian Federal Penitentiary Service. He said that Sentsov is on a diet now. Over the past three weeks, he gained over 10 kilograms and almost returned to the initial weight he had before the hunger strike.
