A Ukrainian consul visited political prisoner Stanislav Klykh who now stays at a prison in Verkhneuralsk, Chelyabinsk Oblast, central Russia. Lawyer Ilya Novikov tweeted that on late February 6.

'Red license plates with numbers 146 on them... a Ukrainian consul arrived in Verkhneuralsk prison to see Stanislav Klykh', Novikov wrote.

He also visited the Ukrainian political prisoner and reported that Klykh looks 'just a little better than he did before he was convoyed from Grozny to Verkhneuralsk; however, his speech makes even more sense than before, he can't even stay focused on one topic'.

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.
