“They quarantined again, they are not allowed to go anywhere. They just started letting them out, it went on for a week, now they are sitting in cells again, ”she said.
The wife added that Konstantin Yaroshenko continues to have health problems, he suffers from toothaches, blood pressure and back. According to Victoria, the convicted Russian does not get better, he is not provided with medical assistance.
On May 31, Yaroshenko's relatives sent a petition for clemency to US President Joe Biden. The issue of pardon, according to the lawyer of the Russian, should have been resolved either at the level of the leaders of Russia and the United States, or at the level of the State Department and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.
Konstantin Yaroshenko was imprisoned by a US court in 2011. He was charged with conspiracy to smuggle drugs and was sentenced to 20 years. He was brought to the United States from Liberia, where he was arrested on May 28, 2010.
