Screening of documentary film about Oleg Sentsov

On July 17, 2018, a screening of Askołd Kurov’s documentary film was held in Bratislava in the Lumiér cinema. Film is dedicated to the fate of Ukrainian film director Oleg Sentsov, who has been the victim of persecution from Russian occupying power in Crimea after  illegal annexation of this Ukrainian peninsula. In 2015 Sentsov was sentenced to 20 years in prison. 

In May 2018, Sentsov, currently held in prison in the northern town of Labytnangi, started a hunger strike demanding the release of 64 Ukrainian citizens illegally imprisoned or detained in Russia. 

Robert Kirchhoff, Slovak film director, Ľudmila Verbická, chair-person of the Ukrainian-Slovak Initiative (USI) and IVO president Grigorij Mesežnikov introduced the screening of the film. The event was a part of series of international solidarity actions with Oleg Sentsov and other Ukrainian prisoners who are de facto in Russian captivity as a result of an aggressive war led by Russia against Ukraine.
