"I appeal to you with a request to pardon my son Oleg Sentsov, born in 1976, convicted by a Russian court for 20 years in a colony of strict regime for organizing a terrorist group," the mother of Oleg Sentsov wrote in the petition.
She noted that she knows her son "as a peaceful citizen and a man keen on his profession - filmmaking."
“I will not convince you of Oleg's innocence, although I myself believe in it. I'll just say that he has not killed anyone. He has already been imprisoned for four years. His children are waiting for him; his youngest son suffers from autism. They miss him. They will never be happy without their father," she wrote.
Today, July 13, Oleg Sentsov marks his 42nd birthday. Sentsov is a filmmaker and writer from Simferopol, best known for his film Gamer (2012).
In May `2014, he was detained by Russian security services in Crimea. Sentsov was sentenced to 20 years in a penal colony in Russia for alleged "plotting acts of terrorism."
On May 14, Sentsov went on a hunger strike demanding to release all the Ukrainians jailed in Russia and in annexed Crimea.
