"There is a situation that, on the one hand, we sought the surgery, on the other hand, it was done without any preparation… For the second day, he [Yaroshenko] cannot walk, he has severe pains. He has not been fed for an unknown reason," Tarasov said.
The surgery was made without notification on Thursday. Doctors haven’t made needed preliminary preparations and haven’t carried out health tests. Moreover, the day before the incident Yaroshenko was put in a solitary confinement for "no apparent reason."
"The surgery was done under general anesthesia. But after 20 minutes after Yaroshenko was awake, he was handcuffed and told 'Stop lying! ' and taken back to the prison in a common cell," Tarasov added.
Yaroshenko wasn’t proper rehabilitation after the surgical procedures. Shortly after Yaroshenko was brought to his cell. According to Tarasov, now he "cannot walk and has severe pains."
