PARIS (QHA) -

French actress Isabelle Huppert joined the flash-mob in support of the Ukrainian film-maker Oleg Sentsov illegally convicted in Russia.

French director Christophe Ruggia shared the corresponding photo of Huppert on Facebook.

“140 days of hunger strike of Ukrainian film-maker Oleg Sentsov. Isabelle Huppert calls for the immediate release of Oleg Sentsov and other Ukrainian political prisoners in Russia," the signature to the photo says.

Note that the films with the participation of Huppert invariably enter the contest program of the Cannes Film Festival. The actress starred in more than 100 films and won dozens of awards. The most well-known films are: "Happy End", "She", "Louder than bombs," "Special Relations."
 
Previously, the media reported that Oleg Sentsov can be exchanged for Russians arrested in the US, Viktor But, Konstantin Yaroshenko and Maria Butina. It was noted that Moscow was ready to discuss such an initiative with Washington.

On September 28, Oleg Sentsov was hospitalized in the city hospital in Labytnangi. According to the Office of the Federal Penitentiary Service of the Russian Federation for the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District, the political prisoner was additionally examined.

Let's note, Oleg Sentsov has been on a hunger strike since May 14. He demands the release of all Ukrainian political prisoners kept in Russian prisons.
