Amnesty International: The Russian authorities must "ensure Stanislav Klykh is provided with a full mental healthcare assessment by an independent expert from outside of Chechnya and that he is provided with adequate medical treatment as required; carry out a prompt, effective and impartial investigation into the torture allegations by Stanislav Klykh and Mykola Karpyuk."

"Please write immediately in Russian or your own language: 
 Urging the authorities to ensure Stanislav Klykh is provided with a full mental healthcare assessment by an independent expert from outside of Chechnya and that he is provided with adequate medical treatment as required;
 Calling on them to carry out a prompt, effective and impartial investigation into the torture allegations by Stanislav Klykh and Mykola Karpyuk."

On 6 July 2016 Amnesty International issued an 'Urgent Action' on the case of Stanislav Klykh. Amnesty International stated: 'Stanislav Klykh is currently in pre-trial detention after being sentenced on 26 May to 20 years in prison after an unfair trial. His mental condition, likely caused by torture and other ill-treatment which the Russian authorities are refusing to investigate, requires urgent attention and independent assessment.'
