Ukrainian political prisoner Oleg Sentsov is not going to write a petition for pardon to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Dmytry Dinze, his lawyer claimed this as Interfax reported.
"Oleg is against a pardon. He will not write anything to the president," Dinze said.
According to a lawyer, Sentsov's state is without changes.
"He says he is mostly lying as he has the problems with kidneys and heart. He had a crisis on the 26th day of the hunger strike. Then he was taken out from the hospital when his state was stabilized. Now he receives three-four liters of different nutritional fluids through catheter because all his veins punctured after the previous procedures," Dinze said.
As it was reported earlier, Ukrainian movie director Oleg Sentsov and Crimean activist Oleksandr Kolchenko were detained by the Russian FSB in the annexed Crimea. Both were taken to Russia. Sentsov was charged with preparing a terrorist act in Crimea and sentenced to 20 years in the high-security penal colony. Kolchenko was sentenced to ten-years-long imprisonment.
Oleg Sentsov has announced a hunger strike on May 14. This way, he demands that all Ukrainians detained in Russia and annexed Crimea be released. Sentsov said he was ready to die if the requirements were not fulfilled.
