Ombudsperson Denisova: Health Of Ukrainian Political Prisoner Balukh Aggravates, He Decides To Write His Last Will

Ukraine's Ombudsperson Liudmyla Denisova says the health of Ukrainian political prisoner Volodymyr Balukh convicted in the Crimea annexed by Russia has aggravated and he has decided to write his last will.

She wrote this on her Facebook page, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

According to her, employees of the remand prison in Simferopol tortured Balukh because of his intention to inform his lawyer about his health.

Following the tortures the employees of the remand prison set the prisoner in front of a video camera and forced him to say he had no health problems and he was satisfied with the treatment at the remand prison.

Denisova says Balukh suffers from strong pain in the heart.

According to her, no doctors have examined Balukh.

She says Balukh has decided to write his last will because he feels that the threats from the side of employees of the remand prison will be realized and he will not come to a colony alive.

Ukraine's Ombudsperson Liudmyla Denisova calls on her Russian colleague Tatiana Moskalkova to provide her access to Volodymyr Balukh immediately and to provide the prisoner with proper medical treatment.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, on September 15, Denisova said Balukh had been beaten by employees of the remand prison in the Crimea.
