Russian Federation is trying to force Russian citizenship on Oleg Sentsov, a Ukrainian movie director, as the statement of Lyudmyla Denisova, Ukraine’s Commissioner for Human Rights, says, 112.u reports.
“Russia is trying to force the Russian citizenship to him – as punishment. It is a weird approach. Citizenship should be a benefit, not punishment,” she said.
Besides, Denisova told that Tatayana Moskalkova, Russian Ombudsman, denied her to visit Sentsov as Denisova I not a Russian citizen.
“Yesterday, Moskalkova, the Commissioner for Human Rights, also denied (her to visit, - ed.) on the grounds that I am not a Russian Federation citizen. It would be weird if a Ukrainian Ombudsman was a Russian citizen. I am a Ukrainian Crimean. So is Oleg Sentsov,” Denisova stressed.
