The US Embassy in Ukraine congratulated detained in Russia Ukrainian film director, Oleg Sentsov, on his birthday and called on Russia to immediately release all Ukrainian political prisoners. It is reported by the press service of the diplomatic department on Twitter.

"Our thoughts today are with Oleh Sentsov, who is spending his birthday in Russian custody. We salute Sentsov’s courage and determination and join the people of Ukraine in calling for Russia to immediately release all Ukrainian political prisoners," the message said.

Earlier the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine again calls on Russia to release Ukrainian political prisoner of the Kremlin, film director Oleg Sentsov. And it also urges the European Parliament to support the resolution on Kremlin prisoners. This was written on Twitter.
"13/07 political prisoner Oleg Sentsov will mark his birthday in the Russian prison. It is symbolic that on 18/07 the European Parliament will hold a debate and vote for a resolution on "Kremlin political prisoners." Russia must release them! We urge members of the European Parliament to support the resolution!" said in a statement.

We recall, Ukrainian director Oleg Sentsov was detained in Crimea in May 2014 on charges of preparing terrorist attacks on the territory of the annexed peninsula. In August 2015, the North Caucasian District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don sentenced him to 20 years in a strict regime colony. In protest, Sentsov refused to eat for 145 days and stopped the hunger strike due to the threat of forced feeding.
