Political prisoner Ruslan Abdurakhmanov, accused of participating in the Noman Çelebicihan Crimean Tatar Volunteer Battalion, during his stay in the dungeons of the FSB in the occupied Crimea, he survived 2 microstrokes. This was reported to the Crimean Tatar Resource Center by his wife Feride.

As the woman noted, before the detention, 31-year-old Ruslan already had health problems, and he suffered 1 microstroke, and inadequate conditions of detention, lack of medical care, bullying and torture aggravated the situation. The man survived 2 more microstrokes. Unfortunately, even this fact did not become a reason for the release of the political prisoner; moreover, the man was sentenced to 5 years in prison.

By these actions, the Russian Federation violates the right of a political prisoner to a healthcare access. Moreover, according to the legislation of the Russian Federation, seriously ill people should be released from custody, since human life is the highest value, and the sentence should not become death.

Recall that Abdurakhmanov was abducted on April 18, 2022 at about 12 noon. Armed men with DPR patches and Russian flags broke into his house in the village of Azovskoye. He was taken to vocational school No. 17 in Henichesk, where other detainees were also kept. Inside, they were all interrogated with the use of torture. On September 2, the Kyiv District Court of the occupied Simferopol illegally sentenced Ruslan Abdurakhmanov to five years in a strict regime colony.
