According to the reporter, the aim of the event is to draw attention to the illegally convicted Ukrainian political prisoners kept in Russia.
“Within the two-hour action, the participants of the action plan to read 8 autobiographical fictions written by Oleg Sentsov. The organizers expect 30-40 people to join the action,” the reporter added.
At the same time, Ukrinform reported that Ahtem Seytablayev, a Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar actor, Andriy Khlyvnyuk, the leader of Bumboks, a Ukrainian band, Rimma Zyubina, a Ukrainian actress, have already joined the protest.
“It is not about “why you came”. One should remind all the people, primarily, oneself,” Seytablayev stated.
As it is known, Ukrainian movie director Oleg Sentsov and Crimean activist Oleksandr Kolchenko were detained by the Russian FSB in the annexed Crimea. Both were taken to Russia. Sentsov was charged with preparing a terrorist act in Crimea and sentenced to 20 years in the high-security penal colony. Kolchenko was sentenced to ten-years-long imprisonment.
