Stanislav Klykh, a Ukrainian hostage, is being held in the hospital of Magnitogorsk, Russia. Lawyer Ilya Novikov reported that on his Facebook page.
The reason of his repositioning to hospital is still unknown, the diagnosis was not informed to the relatives.
“According to the updated information, Stanislav Klykh is in the hospital of Magnitogorsk, not in Chelyabinsk, as it was reported a week ago. The reason and the diagnosis is not informed to his relatives,” Novikov wrote.
As it was reported earlier, recently it became clear that Stanislav Klykh, the citizen of Ukraine illegally convicted in Russia, was transferred to the hospital for medical examination and treatment.
At the same time neither the lawyer nor the relatives do not have the information on the exact medical institution where Klykh was transferred, as well the aim and period. The prisoner’s mother is very concerned by this fact.
Mykola Karpyuk, leader of the Ukrainian National Assembly, was detained in March 2014. Stanislav Klykh was detained in Russia in September 2014, when he came to Russia to visit his pregnant girlfriend.
The Russian jury said they 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.
Later the mental health of Stanislav Klykh got worse.
