According to her, Klykh was found at a regional psychiatric hospital. Kateryna Buryan, the lawyer of Ural human rights group, found him there after his Yekaterinburg-based lawyer had visited Klykh and said that the Russian penitentiary officials promised to transfer him to the mental health institution in Magnitogorsk.

Shchur wrote that Klykh apparently felt better; he also told her he never gave his consent for his hospitalization.

According to her, the political prisoner seems fine - at least better than he looked on June 26, when the lawyer found his speech to be not in order. She said he might be getting sedative injections. Klykh also admitted that he was given 'some injections'.
