MOSCOW, March 12 /TASS/. Russian pilot Konstantin Yaroshenko jailed in the US for drugs offences has serious health problems, the Foreign Ministry's human rights ombudsman told reporters on Thursday.
"As far as I know, a full medical check-up has not been conducted to date and he has persisting serious medical problems," said Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law Konstantin Dolgov.
"Russia has always taken necessary steps in compliance with international rules and standards, unlike some countries where these standards are crudely violated when it comes to treating prisoners and providing access to them, including by doctors," the commissioner added.
Yaroshenko was arrested by US special services in Liberia in 2010. He was secretly transferred to the United States and convicted in 2011 of conspiring to import large quantities of cocaine into the United States. He was sentenced by Manhattan Federal Court to 20 years in prison.
