The condition of philosopher Uladzimir Matskevich is deteriorating: his blood pressure has dropped, his arms and legs are numb and he is very tired. Today he became ill, the doctor was called, the political prisoner was put in an IV and injected with vitamins, after which he regained consciousness.
Today his sister met with doctors from the Department of Corrections of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. They assured her that according to their estimates, Uladzimir’s condition is satisfactory and they have the situation under control.
Relatives and colleagues stress that in the situation of a dry hunger strike, the threat to his life is increasing by the hour. The pastor is still unable to get to him. According to the Facebook account dedicated to the philosopher, no action and decisions have been taken in response to his demands.
We remind that Uladzimir Matskevich has been on hunger strike for 14 days. On the evening of February 14, he refused to take water and went on a dry hunger strike. The philosopher demands to change the measure of his restraint, complete the investigative actions, pass the case to the court and set a date for the trial. Matskevich was detained in August 2021. He was charged with organization and preparation of actions grossly violating public order (part 1 of Article 342 of the Criminal Code).
