The young man is under constant supervision of doctors, he timely receives necessary help. I want to note especially Anton’s courage. Despite the current situation, he does not lose heart and believes in justice", - Tatiana Moskalkova said.

I will do everything within my powers to ensure that this complicated situation is settled as soon as possible and with a positive result", the High Commissioner emphasized.

"Today the problem of seriously ill convicts is systemic in nature. I hope that the draft law developed by me on the compulsory release of seriously ill prisoners from custody will be adopted by the lawmakers as soon as possible", Tatiana Moskalkova said.
