The Pussy Riot activists held an action in support of Oleg Sentsov in Russia's Yakutsk, near the penal colony where the Ukrainian filmmaker now services sentence on trumped-up charges.

Pussy Riot activist Masha Alekhina informed about the action on her Facebook page.

"Yakutsk, Russia’s Republic of Sakha, a bridge across the Lake of Saysary. The penal colony No. 1, where Oleg Sentsov is held, is twenty minutes, seven and a half kilometers from here. We used a linen canvas and pink spray paint to make a banner and placed it on the bridge so that the passers-by and residents of houses across the street could see it," she wrote.

Alekhina also stressed that "the Sentsov and Kolchenko case is one of the main and key political cases in the history of our country."
