Political prisoner Kiyashko “restores” health in the Russian colony – he was transferred to the medical unit
A Ukrainian citizen Igor Kiyashko, serving a sentence at IK-11 in the Nizhny Novgorod region for “military smuggling” and “espionage”, was transferred to the medical unit on Monday because of his worsening state of health.
This was told to a Ukrinform correspondent by the wife of a Ukrainian, Marina Kiyashko.
“About a week ago, her husband’s health deteriorated. And yesterday, Monday, he was transferred to the medical unit, they started giving injections, “said Kiyashko.
According to her, her husband suffers from high blood pressure, headaches and thrombophlebitis (the last diagnosis was already made in detention). Marina Kiyashko also noted that Ukrainian mediator Lyudmila Denisova was in control of the situation with her husband and, if she did not provide timely medical assistance, turned to the Russian side.

As reported, a Ukrainian citizen Igor Kiyashko was arrested in Nizhny Novgorod on April 10, 2018. A former employee of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, and now a practicing lawyer, was charged with espionage and attempted smuggling of parts of military aircraft.
Wife Kiyashko explained that her husband had gone to Nizhny Novgorod for medication for her three-year-old son, who had relapsed from Staphylococcus aureus.
In late December 2018 in Nizhny Novgorod, a regional court sentenced Kiyashko to eight years in a maximum security colony. A Ukrainian citizen admitted that he was trying to buy blades from the RD-33 engine, but dismissed the charges of espionage. According to him, secret documents were thrown at him during his arrest.
Human Rights Commissioner of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Lyudmila Denisova said on April 14 that convicted Igor Kiyashko suffered from high blood pressure and headaches, while his calls for medical treatment were ignored by the prison administration.
