MOSCOW (QHA) -

Activists in Moscow brought a banner in support of the Ukrainian film-maker Oleg Sentsov.

The banner with the photo of the Kremlin prisoner was placed on the Square of Europe, not far from the Kiev railway station.

The action itself was short. It is noteworthy that a number of police officers were present and did detain anyone.

Initially, it was planned to hold the action at the monument to Taras Shevchenko, but the activists decided to change the venue.

The day before, September 6, pickets were held near the building of the RF Presidential Administration in support of the Ukrainian political prisoner Oleg Sentsov. Activists came with the posters "Sentsov 116" (August 6 was the 116th day of the hunger strike of the Kremlin prisoner).

QHA reported that the Human Rights Commissioner in the Yamalo-Nenets district of the Russian Federation, Anatoly Sak, who visited Oleg Sentsov in a Russian prison, said that the Ukrainian film-maker does not plan to stop the hunger strike and intends to go to the end. According to Sak, Sentsov will also not ask the Russian president for his pardon.
