Oleg Sentsov, the illegally convicted political prisoner, who continues the hunger strike in Russia, wrote the letter, addressed to the leaders of G7 member countries. Hromadske.org reports that, referring to the letter's copy.

'Respected lords! Thank you so much for what you and your countries do for Ukraine. There's a lot of things to be done - by ourselves and with your assistance. One of these things is to win in this hybrid war against our enemy. As for the Ukrainian political prisoners, I hope you can do something to seal their fate without focusing on one person - me, for example. You can help a lot of people. Good luck to you with this tough case! Glory to Ukraine!', he wrote. 

Oleg Sentsov announced hunger strike on May 14. He demands to release 64 Ukrainian political prisoners, illegally held in Russian colonies and detention centers.

In August 2015, the Russian court sentenced him to 20 years behind the bars under the charges with preparing terrorist acts in Crimea. The movie director denies all charges.
