“The European Parliament has appealed to Vladimir Putin asking for the immediate release of Oleg Sentsov and others. Now it’s time to tell the word America. We call on our government to take a firm position on this issue and use all the leverage to demand the immediate release of Oleg Sentsov and other Ukrainian political prisoners in Russia”, – said in the petition.
