The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) welcomes the European Parliament’s resolution on Russia, notably the case of Ukrainian political prisoner Oleh Sentsov, UWC President Eugene Czolij has stated.

According to him, in the context of an ongoing hunger strike by Oleh Sentsov and several other Ukrainian political prisoners, the resolution is a response to “the blatant human rights violations by the Russian Federation, including illegal detentions, trials, imprisonments, and torture of Ukrainian citizens for political reasons.”

Czolij added he fully supports the call by the European Parliament for an immediate release of Sentsov. “The Ukrainian World Congress joins the call by the European Parliament for an immediate and unconditional release of Oleh Sentsov and all other Ukrainian political prisoners who are persecuted by the Russian Federation,” stated the UWC President.
