Update. On January 27, 2020, Artem Bagratyan was transferred from the Kursk pre-trial detention center to a hospital, to be examined. In early January, the colony’s chiefs allowed relatives to provide Artem the necessary medicine, which he began to take under the supervision of medical personnel at the detention center. Relatives of the believer are still very concerned.
The management and doctors of the Kursk pre-trial detention center refuse to properly treat Artem Bagratyan, 47, who was arrested for reading the Bible, meeting with fellow believers, and talking with others about the Bible. He has diabetes and hypertension; his condition worsens.
