The state of health of Kirov region Governor Nikita Belykh has deteriorated due to hunger strike and disruptions in medication. About it “RIA Novosti” was told by the White lawyer Vadim Prokhorov.
“His health condition is unstable, it has actually worsened due to the fact that there were interruptions in the medication, and now because of the hunger strike,” — said the lawyer. Prokhorov said that in the near future he is going to visit the Governor, to find out how serious his health problems.
Another White lawyer Olga Mikhailova told “Interfax” that the Governor already gave the necessary medication. “But he continues to keep a hunger strike, demanding meeting with relatives. Of course, he’s weak strong — man so much time not eating,” said the lawyer.
At the moment White is in jail “Lefortovo”. On 29 June he informed the jail administration about the beginning of the hunger strike. Prokhorov explained that the Governor did this in protest against the indictment of the prosecution and also due to the fact that it still did not let his wife and brother.
Defender White also claimed that White refuses to eat because he had no medicines against diabetes. Prokhorov said he could not tell the Governor nor medicines in the Basmanny court, where the issue was resolved on his arrest, nor in “Lefortovo”. However, the official representative of the RCDS Vladimir Markin said that White and no one prohibits the transfer of drugs.
Nikita Belykh accused of receiving a bribe in especially large size. According to investigators, White received €400 thousand for promises to support the Novovyatskiy ski plant and Forestry management company in the implementation of their investment projects. The Governor maintains his innocence.
