Stanislav Klykh was arrested on August 11, 2014. He was held in Russian captivity for 10 months without any access to a lawyer, or ability to communicate with anybody. There were medical records which substantiated Klykh’s consistent allegations that during this period he was subjected to torture and that he was plied with psychotropic drugs.

“According to the latest information, Stanislav Klykh is in a hospital in Magnitogorsk, and not in Chelyabinsk, as reported last week. The family was not officially notified about why he was transferred there and what his diagnosis is,” he wrote on his Facebook page.

Earlier, Ukrainian Human Rights Commissioner Valeria Lutkovska sent a letter to her Russian counterpart Tatyana Moskalkova requesting information on Klykh’s whereabouts.
