Recently, Ukrainian film directors gathered in Kyiv to support Oleg Sentsov, who is now starving in Russia, demanding to release Ukrainian political prisoners from Russian penal colonies. 'The cinema week, organized by Oleg's colleagues should send maximum information about his fare and that of other hostages of the Kremlin. We should give another impetus for the society so that it understands that Russia has been leading cruel and obnoxious hybrid war against Ukraine. Oleg could not take it, and he is now fighting. We have no right to betray him. We've got to fight - with words, actions and weapons. Until he's finally free', said the message of the press service.
The funds raised during the campaign went to the political prisoner's family.
As we reported Ukrainian political prisoner Oleg Sentsov who continues the hunger strike in Russia, wrote the letter, addressed to the leaders of G7 member countries.
Ukrainian political prisoner 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.
