“Every day Sentsov drinking 3.5 litres of water, he is getting an IV with a large amount of glucose, amino acids and nutritional vitamin substances. Any two kilograms he never did. It originally weighed over 90 pounds, now his weight had dropped to 77, and stood up. Moving in the minus 100-200 grams per day. No hunger he was not removed”, — said Dinze.
Earlier, the Commissioner for human rights under the President of Russia Tatyana Moskalkova said that during the strike the Director has gained a few pounds due to intravenous administration of vitamins, glucose and proteins. She compared his protest with the medical starvation.
