MOSCOW, May 21 (Itar-Tass) — Left Front coordinator Sergei Udaltsov, held in custody for an administrative offence (disobedience to police), has stopped his hunger strike, his attorney Violetta Volkova told Itar-Tass.
The opposition activist was taken to hospital some days ago in connection with the worsening of his heath. Doctors insisted he should stop the hunger strike. He will not continue to go hungry, the attorney said, adding that he was in satisfactory condition. He follows recommendations of doctors to come out of the hunger state.
The Left Front coordinator was detained in central Moscow on May 9 during the so-called people's indefinitely-lasting "stroll" (meetings of protesters). The magistrate's court found him guilty of disobedience to a police lawful order and sentenced him to 15 days of arrest. He is expected to be released on My 24.
After the sentence was pronounced, Udaltsov declared a hunger strike and was hospitalized more than once when his state worsened.
