Today a Ukrainian consul in Russia visited political prisoner Pavlo Gryb, as the detainee’s father writes on Facebook.

The detention center officials gave only seven minutes for the meeting, and the interlocutors weren’t allowed to speak Ukrainian. The consul brought medicine for the teenager whose health is in poor condition and getting worse in detention, but it wasn’t allowed through.

Pavlo Gryb’s body is covered in ulcers, which are the sign of his medical condition getting worse without the proper medication.

As it was reported earlier, 19-years old Pavlo Gryb got lost in Belarus on August 24. The young man was later found at a prison in Krasnodar, Russia. He told a Russian lawyer that he had been kidnapped in Belarus and brought to Russia, where he is accused preparing a terrorist attack on a Russian school. The Ukrainian's lawyer said that Gryb was arrested in Russia in absentia

Pavlo's father said that the teenager needs proper medication, as otherwise, the consequences could be fatal. The ECHR demanded that Russia give an account of Gryb’s health and let Ukrainian doctors see him, but Russian authorities refused the latter, thus violating the court’s decision №ECHR-LE2.3R.
