The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine demands from Russia to provide the urgent access of the consul to Oleh Sentsov, the Ukrainian director illegally detained in Russia due to the deterioration of his health. Mariana Betsa, the spokeswoman of the Foreign Ministry reported this on Twitter.
'Due to the information about the deterioration of the health of Sentsov, we demand from Russia to urgently provide the consul with the access to Oleh', she wrote.
In her turn, Natalia Kaplan, the sister of Sentsov asked on Facebook to not spread the information that the problems with health are connected to the intentional poisoning.
'The rumors grew with the opinions of 'the experts' that Oleh was poisoned and he dies. He is not at the resort, four years of the prison, including the far north do not add health', she wrote.
Earlier the mass media reported citing Yuru Kolesnykov, the military expert that Sentsov could be poisoned with the radioactive substance.
'Now we know that Sentsov is dying. According to all signs, it is the poising with the radioactive substance. It is not excluded that Sentsov was poisoned just 'for fun', Kolesnykov noted.
