Dec. 24, a court in the penitentiary where the opposition leader, Yury Lutsenko, is kept is to consider the appeal of his lawyers to free him due to bad health.
“Yury Lutsenko is seriously sick. It is confirmed by medical documents. He badly needs urgent medical treatment,” Oleksy Bahanets, his lawyer, says.
The diseases diagnosed by doctors entitle Yury Lutsenko to the release from prison, his lawyers say.
