A rally in support of political prisoner Oleg Sentsov took place in Kyiv, near the building of the Russian embassy.

The participants – actors, movie directors and script writers – read aloud a play by Elena Gromova, which describes the story of Sentsov’s illegal imprisonment. Then, they demanded to let Sentsov go.

On May 13, Sentsov, who now stays in custody in Russia, announced a hunger strike; he demands that Russia release all Ukrainian political prisoners. Oleg Sentsov was detained in Crimea as a suspect in the preparation of a terrorist act. The Russian court sentenced him to 20 years in prison.
