“The court received a response from the Botkin Hospital, which said that Efremov could not participate in the hearing for health reasons,” said court press secretary Lela Kokaya.

In this case, the diagnosis of the actor is not specified in the answer.

Earlier, Elman Pashayev, Efremov's lawyer, said that the court hearing on the actor's case scheduled for August 18 would be postponed again if his condition would not allow him to come. 

According to the lawyer, doctors confirmed Efremov's stroke. 

On August 11, an ambulance was called to the actor. Later it became known that the doctors decided to hospitalize Efremov.
