The Cheliabinsk detention center claimed that Ukrainian director Oleh Sentsov wasn’t brought to them, human rights defender Tatiana Shchur told OVD-Info

She supposes the location of the Ukrainian is concealed, so that the “human rights activists can’t get to him”.

On September 12, it was informed that Sentsov was moved to Cheliabinsk. On September 23, Sentsov’s lawyer Dmitriy Dinze said that he didn’t know where his defendant was.

OVD-Info says that the detention center where Sentsov was supposed to be moved is a transferring center, meaning that the people are kept there before being moved to other regions.

Ukrainian Oleh 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.
