Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights Lyudmyla Denisova asked to Russia's Ombudswoman Tatiana Moskalkova with a demand to allow her to visit Volodymyr Balukh in the remand center. The Ukrainian side promises a visit to Kyrylo Vyshynsky in the exchange for this as Denisova reported on Facebook.
She claimed that the fact of the beating of Balukh was confirmed by a lawyer and Klyment, the Archbishop of Simferopol and Crimea.
"The heartache appeared in addition to the pain of kidneys, liver and head. Sometimes it is so shrill that causes the gag reflexes. The doctors still have not examined the Ukrainian. I got to know one more reason for beating: Balukh told the lawyer about the state of his health, attitude to him at the remand center and lost hope," Denisova said.
After the physical harm, the workers of the remand center forced him to record a video-appeal in which Balukh states that everything is good, there are no problems with health and the conditions of the detention are great.
"I emphasize: it is a show. So, I want to hear the truth from Volodymyr Balukh. Now he worries: he asked to bring a notary to him. As Sentsov, he will draw up of wills for the case of death. He feels that the threats of the harm will not be only threats and he will not be brought to the colony," Denisova noted.
Due to this, she appealed to Moskalkova with a demand to provide the medical service to Balukh and organize a meeting.
"I have two real and clear demands to the Russian ombudswoman: to immediately provide him a qualified medical service and allow me to visit the Ukrainian political prisoner. One more time I confirm my readiness to accompany Tatiana Moskalkova during the visit to Kyrylo Vyshynsky who is at Kherson remand center," she emphasized.
Earlier, the deputy chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, Ahtem Chyigoz, reported that Ukrainian political prisoner Volodymyr Balukh was beaten up and threatened to get killed in the Simferopol remand center.
According to the Deputy Chairman, Balukh was taken out from his cell, severely beaten up and is threatened to get killed.'
