The Kyiv Shevchenkivskyi District Court has postponed a scheduled hearing that will determine the terms of Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoisky’s detention, public broadcaster Suspilne reported on Nov. 6.
The rescheduled hearing is now set for Nov. 10.
Kolomoisky’s legal team submitted a motion requesting a change in his preventive measure, requesting house arrest due to their client's deteriorating health.
According to Kolomoisky’s lawyer Oleksandr Lysak, the defense filed a motion to grant access to medical professionals, but this request was denied. The lawyer did not disclose the specific health issues affecting his client.
The defense team stated that Kolomoisky himself would address his health concerns during the next hearing. However, the lawyer added that these concerns relate to ‘chronic diseases that are worsening, potentially leading to irreversible consequences.’
