I bring to your attention that for 4 months I have been having impaired hearing and a constant ringing in my left ear, which brings me unbearable torment. While moving from Simferopol to Feodosia, my condition worsens. These symptoms may indicate a microstroke.
The judge of the city court of Feodosia N.V. Kumenska is aware about my health condition since November 30, 2022, as well as the acting head of the pre-trial detention centre V.A. Kharchenko, the head of the medical-sanitary department-91 I.M. Tsarkov; all this time, I have not been able to obtain an examination and medical assistance in the pre-trial detention centre.
It is impossible for me to review the audio materials of the criminal case in this condition. In connection with this, since March 21, 2023, I refuse to review them. I am ready to continue the review immediately after recovery.
Ignoring my illness, constant transportation from Simferopol to Feodosia, not providing medical assistance is inhumane, contrary to all principles of humanity and can be equated to torture!
I demand to stop abusing me, and I declare a dry hunger strike from March 21, 2023 08:00 a.m. until I am diagnosed and the treatment is started, or until my biological death.
March 21, 2023 We shall remind you that on March 21, CrimeaSOS learned that Iryna Danylovych lost consciousness during transportation to the occupation Feodosia city court. Despite the fact that her state of health was rapidly deteriorating, the Simferopol pre-trial detention centre issued documents on the absence of medical obstacles for transportation.
