Information about the incidence of tuberculosis in the colony in Pokrov, Vladimir region, where politician Alexei Navalny is serving his sentence, will be checked by the Presidential Council for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights (HRC). This, as reported by TASS, said the chairman of the council Valery Fadeev.
“We will check the information. If this is so, then this event does not concern Navalny, especially since the colony in Pokrov is considered exemplary, ”he said.
According to Fadeev, “no one ignored Navalny’s problems.”
“I don’t know if there are still prisoners in Pokrov who were just as quickly taken to the regional hospital to have an MRI scan,” he added.
Earlier, Navalny said that his hunger strike in IK-2 continues in conditions of high body temperature and severe coughing. At the same time, the oppositionist wrote that already three people from his unit were hospitalized with tuberculosis.
“When the third was taken away with tuberculosis, we went to read the stand“ disease prevention ”, there is also about this disease. They write that it is necessary to raise the immune system with good nutrition and protein food, ”writes Navalny.
In his opinion, this sounds derisive, since “glue-type porridge and frozen potatoes” cannot be called good food.
