Tatyana Moskalkova, the Russian Ombudsman, informed her Ukrainian colleague Lyudmyla Denisova that the Ukrainian political prisoner Volodymyr Dudka, kept in occupied Crimea, is under medical observation, he receives all necessary medicine, as Denisova wrote on Facebook.
“Finally, Tatyana Moskalkova responded to my request on health condition of Volodmyr Dudka, who is being kept in Simferopol prison… The Russian Ombudsman noted that his condition is satisfactory. Volodymyr is under medical observation due to some chronic diseases he has, he is also being examined, he receives all necessary medicine,” Denisova noted.
According to her, the Advisor of the Russian President, the Chairman of the Council on development of civil society and human rights Mykhail Fedotov confirms this information.
“And again, we have not received any official document which would confirm this,” the Ukrainian Ombudsman stressed.
Dudka was arrested in November 2016 in Crimea along with Dmytro Shtyblikov and Oleksiy Bessarabov. The FSB detained another so-called "Ukrainian saboteurs" who allegedly were planning sabotage on strategic sites of the occupied Crimea in Sevastopol on November 9. The detainees are allegedly members of the ‘terrorist group of Ukraine’s Defense Ministry Intelligence Service’.
