Former interior minister Yury Lutsenko has read 210 books during his stay in Lukyanivska detention center in Kyiv, he said in an interview with broadcaster Voice of America.

"I use in full the time for getting new knowledge. 210 books read during this time have helped me to hold a serious internal discussion and strengthen my beliefs," former minister said.

According to the ex-minister, his morale is much better than physical condition.

"Face to face, doctors talk about the necessity of urgent hospitalization, but on the commission, they sign pre-made recommendations by prison department on drinking anabolic steroids and creon. But I consider unacceptable to keep asking the authorities for treatment. I decided to fight for my rights by a complaint to the European Court of Human Rights," he said.

In addition, Lutsenko believes that the pre-trial detention center is trying to put pressure psychologically on him.

At the same time, the ex-minister added that the psychological situation disappears when he sees compassion and respect in the eyes of staff, policemen, doctors, and most prisoners.
