Mikhail Khodorkovsky has not gone on a hunger strike
Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the former head of the embattled oil company Yukos, has not gone on a hunger strike, the director of the Federal Penitentiary Service said. "The administration of the pre-detention center has no information about Khodorkovsky starting a hunger strike," Yuri Kalinin said. He added that Khodorkovsky's monthly food supplies were worth $1,000. "Do you think he would go on a hunger strike if he treats himself with so much care?" Kalinin said. "Somebody was interested in spreading information [about the hunger strike]." The director said inmates were allowed to go on hunger strikes, if they did not violate the rules of incarceration. If an inmate went on a hunger strike, he/she would be under medical supervision, and if need be, the prison administration might begin forced nutrition. Khodorkovsky's lawyer, Anton Drel, said his client had gone on a hunger strike in support of Menatep head Platon Lebedev, who was placed in an isolation cell for seven days. "I went on a hunger strike in solidarity with my friend Platon Lebedev. He knows he is not alone," Drel quoted Khodorkovsky as saying.
