Ukrainian political prisoner, Crimean Tatar Servet Gaziev, held in a pre-trial detention facility in Rostov-on-Don, had a micro-stroke that caused facial paralysis.

Ombudswoman Liudmyla Denisova announced this on her Facebook with reference to the lawyer.

“According to the human rights activist, the ambulance doctor who was summoned to the pre-trial detention center denied this. He said that Servet is quite healthy and does not need help. Our fellow citizen also complained about the exacerbation of chronic diseases: gastrointestinal tract, diseases of the legs, joints, heart, and headaches. However, the appeal to the administration of the pre-trial detention facility to provide the necessary medical aid and a qualified medical examination are ignored! I regard the above mentioned actions as torture and inhumane treatment, and violation of Article 3 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms” – Denisova wrote.

The Ombudswoman appealed to the Ombudswoman for Human Rights in Russia, Tatiana Moskalkova, with a demand to provide Gaziev with medical assistance. In particular, to take him to any medical facility or a hospital, conduct a medical examination and further treatment, as well as provide assistance in choosing another preventive measure not related to detention, due to his critical state of health.

The ombudswoman also demands that the Prosecutor General of Russia Igor Krasnov provide a legal assessment of “criminal actions by the administration of Pre-trial detention facility #5 in Rostov-on-Don and bring the perpetrators to justice”.

“I call on the international community to continue putting pressure on Russia to release all Kremlin’s prisoners immediately” – Denisova said.

To remind, earlier Denisova told that Ukrainian political prisoners Gafarov and Gaziev are not provided with medical care.
