Oleg Sentsov, the Ukrainian movie director, could have been transferred from Yakutsk penal colony to Irkutsk high-security prison. Zoya Svetova, Russian reporter and human rights activist reported that on Facebook.  

According to Svetova, Russian Federal Penitentiary Service has been refusing to confirm the fact of Sentsov’s transfer for two days now.

Previously, Ukraine’s foreign ministry demanded that Russia let Ukrainian consul visit the illegally detained Ukrainian citizens – Oleg Sentsov, Oleksandr Kolchenko and many others.

Ukrainian Oleg Sentsov, born in Crimea, was sentenced to 20 years in a Russian prison, following his trial in a military court in Rostov-on-Don. The sentence on suspicion of plotting terrorist acts in Crimea was pronounced in summer 2015. Sentencing Sentsov provoked a stormy reaction within the international community, which strongly condemned the groundless allegation and Russia's behaviour.
