“It’s still not clear whether he is there for a long time, and whether it’s actually the final point,” the lawyer said.
According to Sentsov, while being moved, he had been to a few penitentiary institutions that are “considered terrifying” – in Irkutsk, Omsk, and Kirov. He also said he wasn’t abused while being moved to Yamal.
Ukrainian Oleh Sentsov, born in Crimea, was sentenced to 20 years in a Russian prison, following his trial in a military court in Rostov-on-Don. The sentence on suspicion of plotting terrorist acts in Crimea was pronounced in summer 2015. Sentencing Sentsov provoked a stormy reaction within the international community, which strongly condemned the groundless allegation and Russia's behaviour.
As we reported earlier, Oleh Sentsov sent a letter, in which he said he was being transferred from Irkutsk to Yamal.
