It's been exactly five years since fighters of the Russian special service illegally detained Ukrainian Oleg Sentsov and Oleksandr Kolchenko. Both were taken in Simferopol city, under the charges of preparing terrorist acts in the occupied Crimea.

Sentsov was sentenced to 20 years at a high-security penal colony. He currently serves time in Labytnangi, northern Russia. Kolchenko got 10 years behind the bars; he is now staying at a prison in Chelaybinsk oblast, central Russia.
