Chapuh’s lawyer from Crimea Ayder Azamatov informed QHA media about his state.

Today I met with Asan Chapuh. According to the doctors, he has gastritis. Being under house arrest, he fell and he needed urgent hospitalization. He was given the necessary help, and he feels better now. I did not communicate with the doctors, but Asan-aga assumes that he will stay in the hospital for at least 10 days. Tomorrow it will be known that if he will be able to eat, and, most likely, he will know how long he is to stay in the hospital.

Azamatov said that Chapukh was allowed visits of relatives.

Meanwhile, the elderly Crimean Tatar is under the surveillance of Russian security officials, he is wearing an electronic bracelet, and special equipment was installed in the hospital to monitor its movement.
