According to her, Mustafayev has had a fever and cough since March 19, but the occupying Russian authorities in the Crimea do not provide him with proper medical care.

"The health condition of Server Mustafayev worsened - body temperature increased from 37.6 to 39.3, dry cough, severe headache and weakness throughout the body. He appealed to the Southern District Military Court (controlled by Russia) and the administration of the prison he received proper medical care, however, he was given only antipyretic injections, not a single analysis was made and no diagnosis was made,” - the Ombudsman reports.

Such actions by the Russian authorities, in her words, violate the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, which guarantees the human right to life.
