Russian pilot Konstantin Yaroshenko, who is serving a 20-year sentence in the U.S. prison, has received a doctor’s consultation and received a prescribed treatment. This was reported on Wednesday, July 14, by the spouse of the Russian, Victoria.
Previously, Yaroshenko repeatedly complained about deteriorating health. According to his wife, the pilot has problems with blood pressure. In addition, he is experiencing severe toothaches. At the same time in the prison medical unit his complaints were ignored.
“Konstantin was summoned to the doctor, they prescribed pills – antidepressants were prescribed and for blood pressure. They appointed procedures, but there is no understanding when they will be done. It will depend on the prison authorities,” said Victoria Yaroshenko.
She added that the doctor who examined and consulted Yaroshenko was a general practitioner. The Russian continues to suffer from dental pain.
Yaroshenko has not been able to receive medical care since March 2021. It was noted that only a gynecologist remained in Danbury prison, where he is serving his sentence.
Konstantin Yaroshenko was arrested by U.S. law enforcement officials in Liberia in May 2010 on charges of preparing to transport a large shipment of cocaine. He was later deported to the United States, where he was sentenced to 20 years in prison on Sept. 7, 2011. Moscow denies the Russians’ guilt and calls the case a fabrication.
