Ukraine's Embassy in Austria called the government to raise the issue of release of political prisoner Oleg Sentsov, as the Russian leader Vladimir Putin will visit Vienna for negotiations on Tuesday.

According to Facebook post of Ukraine's ambassador Oleksandr Shcherba, Sentsov's case is 'a good opportunity for Austria to prove itself as a true political mediator and a humanist European state, ready to stand up for any particular life'. 

As is known, Oleg Sentsov, the Ukrainian movie director, is on a hunger strike now, demanding to release all Ukrainian political prisoners illegally held in Russia. Rallies are held worldwide in his support; another Ukrainian, Oleksandr Kolchenko, also went for a hunger strike, while staying in custody in Russia.
