Free Oleg Sentsov!

Today, unjustly jailed Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov spends another birthday in a Russian prison. #FreeOlegSentsov!

The Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov was arrested by the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (FSB) in his house in Simferopol in May 2014 and brought to Moscow.

Although the key witness retracted his testimony as given “under duress”, Oleg Sentsov was sentenced to 20 years in a Russian prison on charges of terrorism in August 2015.

Appeals against the original verdict were rejected by the Russian Supreme Court in November 2015 and again in June 2016.

A request for Sentsov’s extradition to Ukraine was also denied in October 2016 on the grounds that he had become a Russian citizen upon the annexation.

Help Oleg!
