19-year-old Ukrainian Pavlo Gryb, who had been kidnapped in Belarus and jailed in a detention center in Krasnodar, Russia, was transferred to a hospital, as his sister Olga Gryb told Ukrainska Pravda.
“We know that he was transferred from the detention center to a hospital, allegedly for a check-up. But which hospital and why, we don’t know. Neither Ukrainian consuls, nor non-biased doctors are allowed to see him,” she said.
She believes the Russian special services, with the help from their doctors, may be trying to deny Pavlo Gryb’s diagnosis – portal hypertension syndrome, due to which he must take medicine daily. The relatives of the youngster say that if he doesn’t take his medicine, it may lead to fatal consequences.
As it was reported earlier, 19-years old Pavlo Gryb got lost in Belarus on August 24. The young man was later found at a prison in Krasnodar, Russia. He told a Russian lawer that he had been kidnapped in Belarus and brough to Russia, where he is accused under Article 205.1 of Criminal Code of Russia (Abetting of the terrorist activities).
