Very alarmed by the deteriorating health of Crimean writer/filmmaker #OlegSentsov, on hunger strike in a Russian prison. I repeat my call for his release. It is urgent now. See my previous statements: https://t.co/b99spNhgEn… @OSCE_RFoM— Harlem Désir @harlemdesir August 9, 2018
Previously, Ukraine's parliamentary ombudswoman Lyudmyla Denisova received the images of political prisoner Oleg Sentsov, who keeps on starving within his hunger strike in the Russian penal colony of Labytnangi. Denisova's counterpart Tatyana Moskalkova sent her these images, and the Ukrainian official published them on Facebook.
'Oleg looks active; he watches TV, reads books and writes something from time to time. Everyone, I quote, 'everyone amazed at his fortitude'. His health conditions are satisfactory,' she wrote.
Earlier on Thursday, Dmytro Dinze, the lawyer of political prisoner Oleg Sentsov said that his defendant suffers another protracted crisis. Lyudmyla Denisova quoted Dinze as saying. 'Twice, they wanted to send him to a hospital where they would plug him to life support systems and start feeding him by force, she wrote.
