Citizen of Ukraine Viktor Utkin, who is illegally detained in the Makiivka correctional facility No.32 in CADO, is experiencing serious health problems and needs immediate treatment. This was announced by Ukrainian Ombudsman Lyudmyla Denisova, having called on the international organizations of the ICRC and the OSCE to urgently help the Ukrainian. She told that Viktor went from Volnovakha to his sister in occupied Donetsk on May 19, 2018 and was detained by representatives of the occupation administration while crossing the Olenivka checkpoint. At first, Viktor was kept in the prison of the so-called "Ministry of State Security of the DNR", where he was subjected to inhuman torture. In March 2020, Viktor Utkin was sentenced to 13 years in prison for "espionage" by the so-called "supreme court of the DNR". At present, Victor is in correctional facility No.32 in Makiivka without proper medical care and food. "I appeal to the leadership of the ICRC in Ukraine to urgently visit Viktor Utkin, facilitate his immediate hospitalization and provide qualified medical assistance. I ask the OSCE coordinator in the humanitarian subgroup of the Trilateral Contact Group Charlotta Relander to personally intervene to provide appropriate assistance and raise the issue of his termination on health grounds. Considering the critical state of health of Viktor Utkin, I demand his immediate release!", - the Ukrainian Ombudsman urged the international organizations.
