Stanislav Klykh, the Ukrainian political prisoner in Russia was transferred from the hospital to the penal colony, where he serves time under trumped-up charges. Lyudmyla Denisova, the Ukrainian ombudswoman posted this on Facebook.

Klykh's mother finally managed to talk to him on the phone, after numerous denials by Russian officials.

'Stanislav said that they drugged him with psychotropics, so he wasn't sure how it would affect his conditions in the future. According to Tamara (mother's name, - 112 International), Stanislav seems well-adjusted, he complains about his kidneys hurting - most likely, after an injury', the Ombudswoman wrote.

Stanislav Klykh has been at Magnitogorsk hospital since late June. He said he never agreed on taking him to the hospital.

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.
