Amnesty International calls on Russia to release Sentsov and Kolchenko
Solidarity meetings will take place in Paris, Stockholm, Warsaw, and Kyiv
The activists will gather near Russian embassy in Kyiv to support the political prisoners in the day of their sentence is pronounced. Solidarity actions will take place in Stockholm, Paris, and Warsaw.
They are charged with the planning and conduction of anti-Russian terrorist attacks. Sentsov faces a 23 years’ imprisonment in a high-security penal colony, Kolchenko may be imprisoned for 12 years. The prisoners accuse the court of presenting a falsified and political case.
The lawsuit took an unexpected turn when key witness Hennadiy Afanasyev took back his testimony (July 31), then "new anonymous witnesses" appeared in the case.
