Ukrainian Ombudswoman Lyudmyla Denisova has urged Russian Ombudswoman Tatiana Moskalkova to facilitate the holding of the immediate surgery for political prisoner Pavlo Gryb.
“I appealed to Moskalkova with the appeal to make immediate surgery for Pavlo Gryb. The Ukrainian doctor, who was present at the court session (on March 4, 2019) stated about the deterioration of the health state of a guy and noted that the provided detention conditions pose the threat to his life,” Denisova reported on Facebook.
Moreover, Denisova reported to Moskalkova that political prisoner Volodymyr Dudka needs medical service and proper conditions of the detention. The Russian ombudswoman promised to check the conditions and state of his health.
Besides, the issue of the wounded Ukrainian sailors was raised: “Moskalkova reported that Andry Eider and Andry Artemenko were examined; they receive the treatment. Vasyl Soroka will pass the examination for further surgery”.
As we reported earlier, Pavlo Gryb is the son of the former Ukrainian border guard Ihor Gryb. The Russian special service detained the 19-year-old boy on August 25, 2017, when he went to Gomel (Belarus) to meet his friend. Later, he was convoyed to Russia. The Russian law enforcers suspect Pavlo Gryb of preparing a terrorist attack at a school in Sochi (a city in Krasnodar Krai, Russia, located on the Black Sea coast, - 112 International).
Russia did not provide the European Court of Human Rights with information about the Ukrainian political prisoner Pavlo Gryb's health status.
Pavlo Gryb was not allowed to see his mother and the Ukrainian consul. Russia promises to give permission to the meeting with the consul, but only after the verdict. Yet, the consular convention signed between Ukraine and Russia does not provide for such refusal.
Denisova assured she would appeal to the representatives of the Council of Europe to get permission for meeting with the consul before the verdict is announced.
