As reported, Sentsov was arrested in Simferopol by Russian security services in May 2014 and convicted in Rostov-on-Don in August 2015. He is currently serving a 20-year prison term on terrorism charges at a high-security penal colony in the Russian Federation. His sentence was upheld on appeal in November 2015. He has been on a hunger strike since May 14, 2018.
On June 4, the Moscow City Court sentenced Sushchenko, a correspondent of the Ukrainian National News Agency, Ukrinform, to 12 years in prison in a high-security prison on espionage charges. He has been under arrest in Moscow since September 30, 2016.
