Ukrainian political prisoner in Russia Stanislav Klykh wrote a letter to another Ukrainian prisoner, film director Oleg Sentsov, in which he thanked him for his hunger strike, which now makes the problem of Ukrainian political prisoners get more attention worldwide. The text of the letter was published by human rights activist Maria Tomak on Facebook.

According to her, she received this letter from Klykh's mother, Tamara Klykh, who visited her son in Russia.

'It did not got into Oleg’s hands before he stopped the hunger strike, but I hope he will receive it after in kind of moral support,' Tomak wrote.

In the letter, Klykh asks Sentsov to stop the hunger strike and thanks for the fact that after it began, the problem of the Ukrainian political prisoners received more attention.

'If you have very bad health, I would ask you to stop the hunger strike. We don’t need your death, your mom and children need you. I’m not judging you if you stop the hunger strike, but nevertheless, I understand that you are annoyed because of the promise of speedy release in letters. I also receive such letters and it is also annoying, but you need to understand that people who write letters from all over the world wish us good things,' Klykh wrote in the letter.
Since October 6, forced feeding is applied toward Ukrainian political prisoner Oleg Sentsov. It is stated in the letter of Sentsov, which was sent to lawyer Dmytro Dinze as 'Nastoyashchee Vremia' reported.

'Due to the critical condition of my health and the pathological changes of the internal organs that began to reveal, I will undertake the forced feeding. My opinion is not considered – because I am allegedly unable to adequately estimate the level of health and the threats looming over it. The forcible feeding will take place within the reanimation activities on the rescue of a patient’s life. In such terms, I am forced to stop the hunger strike since tomorrow, on October 6, 2018,' Sentsov wrote.
