Oleg Sentsov, the political prisoner, who carries on with the hunger strike, shows signs of nice mood - at least as quoted by his visitor; Askold Kurov, Sentsov's counterpart from Russia came to see him in Labytnangi penal colony.

In his commentary for 112 Ukraine TV channel, Kurov said that Sentsov feels well - 'as much as it's possible in his situation'.

'He feels now even better than he did on Day 10 of his hunger strike. He's quite vivacious, looks good. He is in a nice mood, he jokes, and he's very interested in latest news from around the world because he knows nothing about these news', Kurov told the TV channel. 'He says he's fine with the detention conditions. Previously, he complained because it was too cold in his cell. Now, he's got a TV and a furnace, so he doesn't complain about the cold anymore. He gets glucose shots and some vitamins once in two days. Yesterday, he passed some tests, which showed no signs of decline from the normal conditions'.

Kurov added that Sentsov's email is working and he has the access to it, so supporters can write him.
