Doctors describing Sentsov's health condition as satisfactory - Human Rights Council

MOSCOW. Dec 13 (Interfax) - The health condition of the Ukrainian director Oleg Sentsov convicted of terrorism in Russia has been described as satisfactory, the Russian Presidential Council for Civil Society and Human Rights said.

"The results of examinations and tests show no health deterioration. The patient was found to have no life-threatening condition. The recommendation is to continue the prescribed medical therapy as previously. The convict is in satisfactory health condition," Council head Mikhail Fedotov said in a letter to Ukrainian ombudsman Liudmyla Denisova, which was published on the Council's website.

Sentsov had a medical examination on November 19, Fedotov said.

On October 5, Valery Maksimenko, the deputy director of the Federal Penitentiary Service, told Interfax that Sentsov had ended his hunger strike started on in mid-May. He agreed in writing to receive food.

The hunger strike was ended, without achieving the goal, from October 6 under the threat of force-feeding, Sentsov said in a statement released by his lawyer Dmitry Dinze.

In August 2015, the North Caucasus District Military Court sentenced Sentsov, arrested in Crimea in 2014, to 20 years in a high-security penitentiary for forming a terrorist group in Crimea.

On May 14, 2018, Sentsov went on hunger strike, demanding that Ukrainians incarcerated in Russia be released.

On December 12, Sentsov received the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought from the European Parliament. The award was handed over by EP President Antonio Tajani to Sentsov's cousin.
