Human rights activist Roman Martynovskyi told Censor.NET.
Three days ago, Luhin declared a dry hunger strike in the Simferopol remand prison. The Ukrainian demanded that he was sent to serve his sentence in mainland Ukraine. He claims to be a citizen of Ukraine, adding he was granted Russian citizenship against his will.
Today, the occupation authorities neglecting Luhin's requests ordered his transfer to the territory of the Russian Federation.
In protest, Luhin slit his wrists. He was taken to the prison hospital, where he subsequently cut his throat.
According to Martynovskyi, as of 1 p.m. Luhin was being operated on in a Simferopol hospital.
"The operation is over. He has been transferred to the intensive care unit and stays unconscious, his wife says," he wrote on Facebook.
As reported, Andrii Luhin was sentenced to 15 years in prison for a murder.
