Ukrainian Director Oleg Sentsov, who is serving time in a colony Yamal “polar bear” and hunger strike for nearly two months, lost 15 pounds. This TV channel “Gromadske” said a cousin of the prisoner Natalia Kaplan, which was first allowed to see him since the verdict.
The woman said that the health Sentsov allowed him to come to the meeting without the help of physicians, but his condition worsens in the evening.
“Says he is now much easier. The most difficult period — the first three weeks of hunger strike. Now he put a dropper. Without them, he would not have survived. To stop the hunger strike he is not going. Said will go to the end and believe in the victory”, — quotes “Gromadske” Natalia Kaplan.
She added that with the growth of 190 centimeters Sentsov weighs 75 pounds.
May 14, the Director went on hunger strike and tried to stop it only in case of liberation of Ukrainian political prisoners from Russian prisons. A month later, the Commissioner for human rights under the President of Russia Tatyana Moskalkova said that Sentsov is on “fasting” and even a few gained weight, but the attorney Dmitry Dinze has denied this information: according to him, the Director has lost 13 pounds.
In August 2015, Oleg Sentsov, was sentenced to 20 years of rigorous imprisonment and charged with several arsons, preparing terrorist acts in Crimea and explosions in Simferopol. His guilt he does not recognize.
