“He looks worse than the last time. He is too pale. But he walks without help. About a week ago he had the second health crisis. He felt bad and it was supposed to hospitalize him to provide nutritious forcible feeding to give him more mixture. He refused and he they left him in the remand center on condition that he will take the mixture under the control of a doctor. He takes two spoons per day. He is detained at the hospital room and is not going to end the hunger strike. He said: “I will continue until I can do this,” Dinze reported.
He also specified that Sentsov expressed the confusion that the Ukrainian authorities ended the active campaign for the support of the Ukrainian political prisoners.
“Sentsov thinks that the Ukrainian side should enforce the situation with the release of other political prisoners more active,” the advocate specified.
As it was reported earlier, Ukrainian movie director Oleg Sentsov and Crimean activist Oleksandr Kolchenko were detained by the Russian FSB in the annexed Crimea. Both were taken to Russia. Sentsov was charged with preparing a terrorist act in Crimea and sentenced to 20 years in the high-security penal colony. Kolchenko was sentenced to ten-years-long imprisonment.
Oleg Sentsov has announced a hunger strike on May 14. This way, he demands that all Ukrainians detained in Russia and annexed Crimea be released. Sentsov said he was ready to die if the requirements were not fulfilled.
