Russian authorities violated the human rights of a jailed oil executive who has HIV/AIDS and who was not given proper medical treatment for his condition, Europe's Strasbourg-based human rights court has said.
Earlier this month, a Russian court ruled to free on bail Vasily Aleksanian, a former Yukos senior manager, who is also going blind and has cancer.
Aleksanian, 37, will be freed upon payment of a bail of 50 million rubles ($1.77 million), the Russian court ruled.
Aleksanian is under guard in austere conditions in a Moscow hospital, waiting for the bail to be raised, and his supporters have expressed anger at the Russian court's decision.
