Lyudmyla Denisova, Ukraine’s Ombudsman, wants to receive a note from an independent medical commission on the real health condition of Oleg Sentsov, as she wrote on her Facebook page.

“I got terrible news again. Sentsov’s health worsened again. Hypoxia extended a long list of grave diagnoses. Oleg’s brain and heart lack oxygen. It makes the head spin, the body go numb… I want to see a medical note about his health condition from an independent medical commission. I want to make sure that he receives necessary medical aid,” Denisova wrote.
