After visiting Butina in US jail, Russian diplomats to send note to Department of State

"On August 16, embassy officials once again visited Maria Butina in a Washington jail. After the visit, a note will be sent to the US Department of State with a demand to stop using psychological pressure and humiliation against the Russian citizen," the embassy said in a statement. "The prison administration has resumed the inhumane practice of regular night checks, made every 15 minutes. This practice is applied to inmates prone to suicide," the statement reads, adding that Butina "gave no reasons to be considered as such." "In breach of all humanitarian norms, Maria was denied the right to receive letters in Russian under the pretext that they contain ‘encrypted messages.’ However, as a matter of fact the prison administration just does not take the trouble to find a translator," the statement reads. "She is not receiving due medical assistance. Her leg, which has swollen due to constant low temperature in her cell, is getting worse. She is given painkillers instead of treatment and began to limp. Creating such conditions for our citizen, who has not yet been convicted and still remains in the status of the suspect, is inadmissible," the embassy said.
