'Extended visits are allowed once in four months. According to Larysa Kolchenko, this is the first time she sees her son for the last nine months. Three days they will be in the specialized room for visits. She brought a 20 kg pack with her,' reads the message.
Reportedly, Kolchenko declared a hunger strike on May 31, requiring the release of Oleg Sentsov. He had to suspend the strike, as he got very weak.
Kolchenko and Sentsov were detained by Russian intelligence services in Crimea in May 2014. They were accused of the organization of a terrorist act on the peninsula. Kolchenko was sentenced to 10 years of the colony, Sentsov to 20 years. Both are denying their guilt.
