MOSCOW, December 20 (Itar-Tass) —— Sergei Udaltsov, a member of the opposition who declared a dry hunger strike, has been transferred from an intensive care unit of a Moscow hospital to an ordinary hospital ward. There is no threat to his life, his wife said.
"Udaltsov has been let out of the intensive care block. He was administered an intensive therapeutic treatment for medical reasons to take him out of starving condition. There is no threat to his life now," she said. "It is clear that he will have to undergo a long treatment," she added.
Earlier the Zyuzino Moscow district court had sentenced Sergei Udaltsov to 15 days of administrative arrest for unauthorized leaving the place where he was to stay during his administrative arrest. Udaltsov declared a dry hunger strike, which sharply worsened his condition. On Sunday, Udaltsov was brought to an intensive therapy block of Moscow municipal hospital No. 64 in critical condition.
