"Since the last meeting, when I got sick, no one did anything, they take me here and say that I am healthy. I ask you to postpone the court session. I should not sit here and suffer," Hryb said.
He noted that he was not able to participate in the debate, complaining of nausea and pain.
"They brought me to a separate room this morning. There is nothing there, they just shut it down. It was done to look at my papers. There are special people for that. They deliberately brought me out, looked. And I have nothing there. There are statements and the last word," he added.
He considers his case to be exclusively political.
