"I ordered a talk with him for today but it did not take place as he was sent to the psychiatric hospital," she said.
Also, she said that lawyer noted considerable deterioration of Klykh's health during their last meeting.
"I called human right activist Tatiaina Shchur in Russia. She said that the lawyer visited him. He said that Stanislav is in the bad state and cannot talk with him. He said: "I think he will be sent to the hospital." He also signed some documents," Tamara Klykh said.
Stanislav Klykh was detained in Russia in September 2014, when he came to Russia to visit his pregnant girlfriend.
The Russian jury said Klykh and another Ukrainian political activist, Mykola Karpyuk both allegedly joined the Viking unit, which fought on the side of Chechen nationalists as they sought independence from Russia in the 1990s. The jury accused Karpyuk and Klykh of killing and wounding dozens of Russian servicemen. Klykh was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
