During the conversation, Oleg Sentsov told Tatiana Moskalkova about his state of health and communication with his family.

«The conversation lasted almost half an hour. Oleg said that he kept an e-mail correspondence with his mother and used the right to make telephone calls to communicate with his sister. He also reads a lot, Oleg noted that there was a good library in the colony, " Tatiana Moskalkova said.

The High Commissioner also expressed the willingness to provide all necessary assistance to Oleg Sentsov.

Following the conversation, the federal ombudswoman addressed media representatives.

«I ask the media to be as delicate as possible regarding the issue of Oleg Sentsov’s health. Mass media sources recently reported that Sentsov was almost in critical condition, but he said today that the issue is often exaggerated," Tatiana Moskalkova said.
