Ukrainian political prisoner Stanislav Klykh illegally held in Russian detention currently stays at the asylum of Magnitogorsk, northern Russia. Tatyana Shchur, the human rights activist posted this on Facebook.

According to her, Klykh was found at a regional psychiatric hospital. Kateryna Buryan, the lawyer of Ural human rights protection group, found him there after his lawyer is Yekaterinburg visited Klykh and said that the Russian penitentiary officials promised to hand him over to the asylum in Magnitogorsk.  

Shchur wrote that Klykh apparently felt better; he told her he never allowed hospitalization.

The political prisoner seems fine - at least better than he was on June 26, when the lawyer found his speech was not in order; but he may be getting shots of some soothing agents. He himself admitted that he was given 'some injections'.

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.
