Prison where Iryna Danylovych is kept is terribly unsanitary, says the journalist's father

15.11.2023, 17:07

The prison in Zelenokumsk (Stavropol Krai, Russia), where the Russians are unlawfully holding the Crimean citizen journalist Iryna Danylovych, is terribly unsanitary, her father Bronyslav Danylovych told QIRIM.News.

According to him, the penal colony No. 7 only has five water taps for 200–400 people; there is no soap in the dining room, people walk around in winter jackets. Normal people are simply being broken in the prison.

"I never thought that my father, a war veteran, would be talking about the occupation. It turns out that the Germans were kinder than the Soviet government," the man stressed.

Citing people who have visited this colony, the media outlet notes that the women's colony in Zelenokumsk is known for its unsanitary conditions. Cockroaches often get into the food, the cells are very cold and the roofs leak.

As the IMI reported, the human rights organization ZMINA says (citing the findings of independent experts) that an independent analysis of the medical examination provided to the Crimean citizen journalist Iryna Danylovych, who has been imprisoned by Russia, revealed that she suffers from acute otitis media, has neurological disorders and brain damage, and may have suffered a stroke as well.

In August Iryna Danylovych's father, Bronyslav Danylovych, said that she had lost all hearing in her left ear and is receiving no medical assistance.

Earlier, she had been moved to a prison in Zelenokumsk, Stavropol region, Russia.

On June 29, 2023, it was reported that the Russian-backed Supreme Court of Crimea changed the ruling in the case of Iryna Danylovych, who had been previously sentenced to seven years in prison on charges of storing an explosive device.

Iryna Danylovych was detained on April 29, 2022, in the occupied Crimea. She was detained on her way from work on the road from Koktebel to Feodosia. Her house in Vladislavivka village was searched, her phone and laptop were seized.

On November 2, 2023, it was reported that Iryna Danylovych had suffered a stroke while still in the Simferopol PTDC.
