The Greens-European Free Alliance (Greens-EFA) of the European Parliament has published the interactive map of Russia with the places where the political prisoners, including dozens of the Ukrainians, are held.

The map was issued before the 2018 FIFA World Cup that will take place in Russia from July 14 until July 15.

If we flick the switch from Fair play to Foul, the places of the captivation where the political prisoners are held will appear.

Also, it is possible to see the list of the political prisoners, including Ukrainian Oleg Sentsov, Volodymyr Balukh, Oleksandr Kolchenko, Oleksandr Shumkov and others.

Last year European filmmakers called Putin to immediately release Sentsov. Their letter was directed to President Putin, Sergey Naryshkin (Chairman of the State Duma of the Russian Federation), Alexander Bortnikow (Director of the FSB) and other Russian official bodies. 

As we reported earlier, the documentary 'Process' about the case of Ukrainian movie director Oleg Sentsov filmed by Russian moviemaker Askold Kurov is available to the public on May 31.
