18:41, 10 December 2018

Oleg Sentsov will be transferred from hospital back to prison cell, Russian Interfax reports. The chef department of Federal Service for Corrections reason that Sentsov has no serious health problems any more. Doctors say his state of health is satisfactory.

Earlier doctors revealed organic changes of heart, liver and kidneys.

As it was reported earlier, Sentsov was sentenced to 20-years-long imprisonment in Russia, as the judges found him guilty of preparing a terrorist act in the annexed Crimea. Oleg Sentsov began his hunger strike on May 14, 2018. The main requirement was to release the Ukrainians, who became political prisoners of the Kremlin. He stopped his 145-days hunger strike. European People's Party nominated Ukrainian political prisoner for the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought.
