KYIV (QHA) -

The Ukrainian filmmaker and political prisoner Oleg Sentsov has anemia, and his pulse is very weak, according to his lawyer Dmitry Dinze.

He reported that the state of health of the prisoner of the Kremlin is bad.

"In particular, hemoglobin decreased severely, which led to anemia, and a very weak pulse, about 40 beats per minute," Dmitry Dinze informed after visiting Sentsov.

Sentsov is experiencing heart problems, and two attempts were made to persuade him to go to the hospital. He also feels unwell due to the fact that the weather in Labytnangi became very warm, and Sentsov currently has a low tolerance of heat.

When asked about a possibility to stop the hunger strike, the lawyer replied that the political prisoner does not intend to do this.

Sentsov also opposed transferring to the civil hospital of Labytnangi, since "the head of the intensive care unit is aggressive towards him, and most likely, can only do harm."

"He also opposed transferring to the hospital because he simply may not be able to withstand the transfer and die," the lawyer explained.

QHA reported that previously the Commissioner for Human Rights of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Lyudmila Denisova appealed to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein with a request to facilitate in visiting Ukrainian political prisoners by international organizations. According to the Ukrainian Ombudsperson, Russia is concealing information on the actual health status of Oleg Sentsov, Stanislav Klyh and Volodymyr Balukh.

Earlier, on July 31, the Mayor's Office of the 4th district in Paris held an action in support of the Ukrainian political prisoner Oleg Sentsov. Deputy Mayor of Paris Patrick Klugman noted that similar actions will be held until Sentsov is released.
