The political prisoner Ruslan Zeytullaev, sentenced to 12 years of strict regime by the North Caucasian Military District Court, went on a hunger strike for the second time, the lawyer Emil Kurbedinov reported on Facebook.
According to Kurbedinov, Ruslan went on another indefinite hunger strike in protest against the verdict and repression of the occupiers. The lawyer also noted that representatives of the Consulate of Ukraine still can not get to the prisoner.
“Under various contrived pretexts representatives of the Consulate are not allowed to see Ruslan! Ruslan initiates the renunciation of Russian citizenship! We see a strong and courageous adherent and activist who in all circumstances intends to fight for his rights and the rights of his people," the lawyer wrote.
Earlier, QHA reported, that on 26 April Ruslan Zeytullaev stopped the previous hunger strike for health reasons and numerous requests of the public.
