The Russian side still has not provided the specific data about current health conditions of the Ukrainian political prisoners, who are now starving in Russian penal colonies. Lyudmyla Denisova, the Ukrainian parliamentary envoy for human rights, said that as quoted by her press service.

She reiterated that Ukraine's Volodymyr Balukh, Oleg Sentsov and Stanislav Klykh continue to starve - for 93, 37 and 12 days, respectively, remanding to release all Ukrainian political prisoners from Russian prisons. Oleksandr Kolchenko also went for a hunger strike but he ceased it, having lost eight kilograms.

Denisova added that their health conditions are worsening, but there's been no certain official information about any of them.

The Ukrainian ombudswoman asked her Russian counterpart to assist her in visiting the said prisoners, which would let Denysova monitor their rights for the necessary medical assistance. In response, the Ukrainian side offers to provide the Russian officials simultaneous visits of four Russian citizens, who now serve time in Ukraine - according to the lists of prisoners sent by the Russian side.

Earlier, the Russian penitentiary system workers did not let Denisova visit Oleg Sentsov in Labytnangi colony.
