Political prisoner Oleg Sentsov is not going to work in the Russian prison. His lawyer Dmytro Dinze said this, according to Krym.Realii. 

‘He is not going to work and doesn’t wish to be involved in any production. Maybe he can be attracted to work, but easy or hard (work, -, it's pretty relative. Maybe it is a work in the library,’ the lawyer said.

Oleg Sentsov stopped the hunger strike on the 144th day. The Russian side officially announced the statement by Sentsov but did not reveal the reason. According to the lawyer of Sentsov, the decision to end the hunger strike was made after Russian doctors and penitentiary facility workers issued an ultimatum to Sentsov, suggesting that he either voluntarily stops the hunger strike or agrees to be force-fed.
