According to Zoya Svetova, a human rights activist, who managed to have a video conversation with the prisoner, Oleg was hospitalized in intensive care on Friday. "He is in the infirmary right now," she said. 

At the same time, Natalia Kaplan is not aware of Oleg's health state.

"There is no a trustworthy information at the moment, the attorney will visit him at the end of the week. After that things will be clear. Oleg didn't tell me anything about his health, we have been talking about mere things like what to tell his kids and mom. I've been telling him about the other political prisoners and about him," she said. 

Also, the sister said that Sentsov wasn't going to eat anything. 

"He is not going to give up, die and refuse from his hunger strike conditions," Natalya Kaplan emphasized.

As we reported earlier, that Oleg Sentsov was falsely imprisoned in the Russian Federation and sentenced to 20 years of a colony. Oleg declared indefinite hunger strike on May 14. His main requirement is to liberate all Ukrainian political prisoners in Russian penitentiary systems.  

Oleg's defense is reporting about a deterioration of health of the filmmaker. He was drugged one liter of glucose every day, according to his sister. 

Doctors examined him on June 8. 

Reportedly, Kolchenko and Setsov, Ukrainian political prisoners were captured by the Russian Intelligence Services on May 2014 in Crimea. They have been accused of having organized terrorist acts on the peninsula. Kolchenko was sentenced to 10 years of a strict-regime colony.
