“After a six-day hunger strike and lack of medical aid his health got worse. He stopped one of the severest and complicated protests – hunger strike,” the Ombudsman wrote.
Denisova specified that yesterday morning Chapuh could not even walk.
Other prisoners led him by the hand to the meeting with the lawyer.
“Now, his condition is even worse,” the Ombudsman stressed.
According to Denisova, regardless of this, Chapuh did not receive medical assistance.
“Even after my promises to the Ombudsman Tatyana Moskalkova, Asan was not provided with medical aid. I am waiting for an immediate reaction and actions from the Russian side to the note of our Foreign Ministry,” the Ombudsman wrote.
Besides, she added that she considered such actions “purposeful tortures” of the Crimea Tatar.
Reportedly, Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry expressed a strong protest to the Russian side the hunger strike and lack of medical aid for the prisoner Chapuh. The Ukrainian diplomatic authority asked to release all the Ukrainians, who are prosecuted in Russia and Crimea immediately.
Asan Chapuh, who is illegally detained in Simferopol prison, announced a termless hunger strike on September 15. He demands to be transferred to the house arrest and appropriate medical assistance. According to the political prisoner, he had a microstroke and his health condition is worsening.
