The health of Vladimir Kara-Murza in the disciplinary cell has deteriorated

Lawyer Vadim Prokhorov reported a “significant deterioration” in the health of political prisoner Vladimir Kara-Murza. On his Facebook page on Wednesday, Prokhorov wrote that his client was placed in a disciplinary cell on February 21 by the leadership of Moscow Detention Center No. 5 “Vodnik”. The reason for the tightening of the conditions of detention was, as the lawyer writes, that the prisoner repeatedly allowed himself to “lie in his cell in his bed” after the lights went out.

On the third day of his stay in the punishment cell, Vladimir began to lose sensation in his right foot, then in his left foot. The numbness of the extremities is associated with his stay in the punishment cell, as well as the fact that in May 2015 he was badly poisoned, was in a coma for several weeks, then regained his motor skills for more than a year.

The lawyer reports that Vladimir Kara-Murza developed peripheral polyneuropathy following two serious poisonings.

After several days in the punishment cell, the numbness in Vladimir’s feet resumed. In this regard, Kara-Murza wrote a statement addressed to the head of SIZO-5, Dmitry Komnov, with a request for examination by a neurologist.

Vladimir Kara-Murza has been in prison since April 2022. According to the inquest, speaking on March 15 in the United States before members of the Arizona House of Representatives, Kara-Murza, “acting on motives of hate political, deliberately disseminated false information under the guise of reliable messages”. In particular, it was then about the bombing of residential areas and social infrastructure of Ukraine.

Deutsche Welle draws attention to the fact that in July last year another criminal case was initiated against Vladimir Kara-Murza – concerning the activities of an undesirable organization (the opponent was vice-president of the Free Russia Foundation, recognized as undesirable on the territory of the Russian Federation). In October 2022, a third criminal case is launched: Kara-Murza is accused of high treason.
