Ukrainian director Oleg Sentsov who had been unlawfully convicted in Russia was put into a punishment cell in Yamal prison, according to Mediazona sourcing the Telegram Channel of Pavel Chikov, the Head of international human right group Agora.
After being transferred to the prison, Oleg wound up in a punishment cell. He is healthy, and was saying hello!” Chikov told.
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 actions.
As we reported earlier, Oleh Sentsov sent a letter, in which he said he was being transferred from Irkutsk to Yamal. Later on, this information was confirmed.
