A doctor of the penal colony No. 8 in Labytnangi, where Ukrainian film director Oleg Sentsov is serving sentence, says that Sentsov's internal organs may fail any moment. 

Russian human rights activist Zoya Svetova, who has visited Sentsov today, said this to Radio Liberty.

The doctor, whom Svetova also met when visiting the colony, pointed to the need for stopping the hunger strike as soon as possible and confirmed that internal organs may fail any time. If the next, already fourth, health crisis happens, Sentsov will be taken to crisis care centre in a civilian clinic, the doctor said.

As reported, Russian human rights activist Zoya Svetova has visited today Oleg Sentsov, who continues his hunger strike, in the penal colony in Labytnangi. Sentsov characterized his condition as "pre-critical."

Ukrainian film director from Crimea Oleg Sentsov, who was illegally sentenced to 20 years in Russia on May 14, 2018, declared a hunger strike demanding the release of all Ukrainian political prisoners of the Kremlin. On May 28, he agreed to supportive therapy.

On August 8, his sister, Natalia Kaplan, said that Sentsov's health was catastrophic.

Ukrainian human rights commissioner Liudmyla Denisova called on Russian ombudsman Tatyana Moskalkova to organize Sentsov's transfer to a clinic in Moscow.
