The state of former political prisoner Volodymyr Balukh, who stays in the hospital for the third day after beating, is estimated as stable critical as MP from European Solidarity Iryna Gerashchenko reported on Facebook.
“From treating physicians of V. Balukh who constantly keep in touch with us: “The state is stable critical but without deteriorating. Nobody provides predictions,” Gerashchenko wrote.
Earlier, Balukh had surgery; he stays in intensive care.
On September 8, Volodymyr Balukh, the former political prisoner in Russia suffered a beating by the unknown attackers. His arm and collarbone broken.
Ukrainian citizen Volodymyr Balukh was detained in the Russia-annexed Crimea in December 2016. Russian FSB operatives claimed that they found ammunition and TNT pellets in his house. Balukh claimed he was framed. The Ukrainian activist who hoisted the Ukrainian flag in the already occupied Crimea ended up in Russia, where they judged and sentenced him to a prison term.
The Ukrainian spent more than two years in Russia under trumped-up charges, before eventually returning to Ukraine last September.
