According to the Acting Healthcare Minister, the relatives of Edem Bekirov stated the possibility of the ‘sugar coma’ is increasing every day.
As we reported earlier, the health situation of Crimean Tatar political prisoner Bekirov is critical.
Russian law enforcers detained Crimean Tatar Edem Bekirov at the entrance to occupied Crimea on December 12, 2018. Edem was heading from mainland Ukraine to Crimea to visit his 78-year-old mother and relatives.
According to Ukrainian MP Refat Chubarov, Bekirov was arrested during passport control on the territory controlled by the Russian law enforcers. Later, Chubarov noted that the detainee was taken to Russia’s Security Service office in annexed Simferopol.
