“In fact, he did not get any medicine, if we talk about the medical service of the remand center. The consuls put money on his account, he purchased some medicines for his own money and took them last time in 2017 and did not get any medicines in 2018,” she said.
Dubrobina noted that Pavlo Gryb who suffers from the rare disease is at the remand center of the Federal Security Service in Rostov Oblast, Russia and the medical examination before the transfer to this remand center stated the deterioration of his health.
We recall, on April 28 District Court in Russia's Krasnodar extended detention for the Ukrainian political prisoner for another two months - until July 4. The father of the Pavlo Gryb noted that during his stay in the prison his son's eyesight deteriorated significantly.
Since early 2018, Ukrainian political prisoner Pavlo Gryb has been facing an increased psychological pressure, as he remains in the Russian prison cell. His father Ihor Gryb said that as quoted by Radio Liberty.
'The investigation team has been putting a lot of pressure on him. It's tough; last year, it was different, and now it changed. They imposed certain nutrition limits. When we passed him some food last time, they refused, explaining that he needed dietary nutrition. They refused to take cheese and meat products,' he said.
According to Ihor Gryb, he has no idea about his son's actual health conditions.
'They did not let the doctors see him - nor his mother, actually. The court hearing should take place soon. We hope his Mom will at least have a chance to look at him. Last time she saw him was March 2. She says she could not recognize him; he looked very different from what he used to look', Pavlo Gryb concluded.
