Russian authorities received two requests to pardon Oleg Sentsov, a Ukrainian political prisoner, as Dmytro Dinze, his lawyer, said, Hromadske reports.

At the same time, he refused to reveal the names of the requestors.

“At least two requests on pardon were filed, I will not tell who, how and why. I think that those people who did it should tell,” the lawyer said.

According to Dinze, one of the requests came from Europe, another – from a local region.

He also explained that juristically, a family does not necessarily have to ask for pardon.

“These can be people from abroad and civil servants. There are no limits concerning the request for pardon,” the lawyer added.

Earlier, Tatyana Moskalkova, Russian Commissioner for Human Rights, said health condition of Oleg Sentsov who is kept in Russian jail is generally satisfying, but there are still some concerns due to his hunger strike.

At the same time, the Russian Ombudsman added that Sentsov is being medically examined daily. The local medical worker checked his condition today in the morning.

It should be noted that the Russian and Ukrainian Ombudsmen arrived in the remand prison where Sentsov is kept, simultaneously. Yet, Lyudmyla Denisova came there earlier than her Russian colleague, but she was not allowed to visit Sentsov.

Denisova, a Ukrainian Commissioner for Human Rights, does not believe Moskalkova’s claims that Sentsov’s health condition is satisfactory.

On June 29, the lawyer of the political prisoner stated that Sentsov’s health state is stable.
