KYIV (QHA) -

Today, on the 1st of February in violation of all terms, the hearings of the Krasnodar Regional Court devoted to reviewing the appeal against the detention measure for Pavlo Hryb took place. According to his father`s statement Ihor Hryb, the prisoner's health state is very difficult.   

“The lawyer became aware of the court hearing accidentally and found out about it 1 day before the trial. Everything was done in such a way so that parents could not manage to arrive. According to the lawyer, Pavlo has a very exhausted look, constantly complains on pain in the stomach and abdomen. The general depressive state, as a consequence - increased psychological pressure from the investigators and the Detention Center administration,” Ihor Hryb wrote.

According to Ihor Hryb, his son "has neither medicine nor minimal dietary food"

“Internal bleeding can start any time. No medical specialists who can help  Pavlo's disease are in Krasnodar. Nobody can provide medical assistance. Every day in jail can be the last for him! Pavlo's life is in danger!,” he wrote.  

Earlier, Olha Hryb, the sister of 19-years-old Ukrainian citizen Pavlo Hryb, wrote an open letter to the Council of Europe. In the text, she notes that her brother has been illegally detained in pre-trial detention center No. 5 in Krasnodar city  (the Russian Federation) for more than 110 days. Olha Hryb points out that fundamental rights, which are protected by the Human Rights Convention, are flagrantly violated against Pavlo. 

Reference: Pavlo Hryb disappeared in Belarus on August 24. His father had previously worked in the State Border Service of Ukraine and immediately assumed that his son had been abducted by the Russian Federal Security Service officers.

On September 7, the General Consulate of Ukraine in Rostov-on-Don received a message from the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation in the Krasnodar Territory about detaining  Pavlo Hryb in the pre-trial detention center of Krasnodar.  

Hryb is accused of "terrorism" (Article 205 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, which provides for imprisonment from 10 to 15 years).
