The Russian pilot Konstantin Yaroshenko, who is serving a sentence in an American prison, has an aggravated problem with his teeth – the man is in severe pain, but he does not receive qualified medical care. The wife of the Russian, Victoria, spoke about this on September 10.
“Constantine’s tooth hurts terribly. He says that he will have a little patience and will go to pull out, because there is no longer any strength to endure. This is the last tooth that could somehow chew food. After removal, there will be simply nothing to chew with, “- said Victoria TASS.
According to her, in prison Yaroshenko is given painkillers, but the drugs practically do not help, and the prison administration approaches the state of health of the Russian formally. So, back in June, the pilot was offered to remove the tooth, and after his refusal, the diseased tooth was sealed without performing the necessary procedures.
In early August, it became known that the re-spread of COVID-19 began in the prison where Yaroshenko is being held. So, the coronavirus was confirmed in one of the prisoners and two employees; quarantine was introduced in one of the blocks. However, the administration of the institution refused to test prisoners for coronavirus infection.
At the end of April, Yaroshenko complained of the symptoms of coronavirus, and his cellmate died from COVID-19. The Russian claimed that all prisoners were infected with the coronavirus infection. In mid-May, Tatyana Moskalkova, Ombudsman for Human Rights under the President of the Russian Federation, announced that Yaroshenko had not confirmed the coronavirus.
Konstantin Yaroshenko was arrested by US law enforcement officials in Liberia in May 2010 on charges of preparing to transport a large consignment of cocaine. He was later deported to the United States, where on September 7, 2011, he was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Yaroshenko denies guilt and calls the case against himself fabricated. He is currently serving time at Danberry Prison, Connecticut.
