“His health condition is satisfactory for now. With his permission, he is receiving IV line with a full range of nutrient substances, proteins and vitamins,” Moskalkova wrote.
“He did not lose weight, he actually put on two more kilograms,” she added.
Earlier, Lyudmyla Denisova, Ukrainian ombudsman, was not allowed to visit Sentsov. Later, Denisova stated that the negotiations with the Russian side concerning the visits to Ukrainian political prisoners kept in Russia, reached a stalemate. Afterwards, she said that the parties are working towards the development of the visiting schedule and the process has moved forward.
As it is known, Ukrainian movie director Oleg Sentsov and Crimean activist Oleksandr Kolchenko were detained by the Russian FSB in the annexed Crimea. Both were taken to Russia. Sentsov was charged with preparing a terrorist act in Crimea and sentenced to 20 years in the high-security penal colony. Kolchenko was sentenced to ten-years-long imprisonment.
Ukrainian political prisoner Oleg Sentsov has announced a hunger strike on May 14. This way, he demands that all Ukrainians detained in Russia and annexed Crimea be released. Sentsov said he was ready to die if the requirements were not fulfilled.
Sentsov has been on hunger strike on 31 days in a row now.
