An image of Ukrainian film director Oleg Sentsov showed up at Krymskiy Bridge in the downtown Moscow. Russian photographer Viktoriya Ivleva posted this on Facebook.

As is known, the movie maker and political prisoner continues his hunger strike in Labytnangi penal colony, northern Russia; he’s been starving for 87 days in a row.

Previously, the Russian court found him guilty of preparing terrorist acts in the occupied Crimea and sentenced him to 20 years in the high-security penal colony. Sentsov’s lawyer Dmytro Dinze said that the Russian authorities are not going to release Sentsov in the near future.

Dinze also added that his health conditions are now worsening, but the film director remains stubborn, demanding to release him and the rest of Ukrainian political prisoners.
