‘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, - 112.international), it's pretty relative. Maybe it is a work in the library,’ the lawyer said.
Dinze added that he can’t approve or deny information that the political prisoner was released from the medical unit in Labytnangi prison.
‘I can neither confirm, nor deny this information. I will be able to visit him in the middle of January and will get to know about it right there,’ he 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.
He announced a hunger strike in May 2018, demanding to release him and the rest of Ukrainian political prisoners illegally kept by the Kremlin. Sentsov survived four health crises and ceased to starve after 144 consecutive days of that hunger strike.
Later, it was reported that Oleg Sentsov had “organic lesions” of the heart, liver, and kidneys.
