Sister of illegally detained in the Russian Federation Ukrainian film director Oleg Sentsov Natalia Kaplan stated that the fake news on Oleg’s detention could be someone’s nasty trick. She said that in her interview to Hromadske radio.
Natalia said that she doesn’t believe in conspiracy theories, though she admits that the message could be someone’s nasty trick or someone use the journalist Ivleva for misleading information. She is not aware who could do that.
“Please don’t … It’s much worse when the hopes collapse,” Natalia asked to refrain from dissemination of unverified information.
Earlier, she urged not to disclose information about his possible release, until he leaves Russia.
As we reported earlier, Viktoria Ivleva, reporter of Novaya Gazeta claimed that a plane with Oleg Sentsov on aboard took off from Executive Centre of Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District in early hours of August, 12. She reported that a plane with him departed from Salekhard. However, couple hours later Viktoria Ivleva updated her post and said that as of 2:55 she has no information about the plane and Sentsov anymore.
Later the Directorate of the Federal Prison Service of Russia for Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District refuted Sentsov left the colony in Labytnangi.
