The State Financial Monitoring Service of Russia has blocked the transfer of the funds to the account of Pavlo Gryb, the Ukrainian arrested in Russia. He is unable to buy the necessary medicines and drinking water as his father Ihor Gryb reported on Facebook.
'For a long time, we have demanded from the administration of the remand center to allow Pavlo to buy (for his own funds) vital medicines and food. And now here is another 'step' of the Russian side. This information was received after the visit of Pavlo by the Ukrainian consuls at the remand center in Krasnodar last week. It is hard to define it in other words than the mockery. It is unknown how the sick organism will stand 9, 5 months of the arrest, the absence of the medicines and usual drinking water (it is bought in the remand center)', Ihor Gryb wrote.
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.
