In Hong Kong, local activists, including one of the main nominees for the Nobel Peace Prize 2018 Joshua Wong, picketed the Consulate General of the Russian Federation with a demand to release all Ukrainian political prisoners.

"The leaders of Hong Kong’s Umbrella Revolution in 2014, including one of the main nominees for the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize, 21-year-old Joshua Wong, today picketed the Consulate General of the Russian Federation with the demand to release all Ukrainian political prisoners of the Kremlin and to end the era of Putin's rule," the community of Save Oleg Sentsov wrote on Facebook.

Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov was detained by Russian security services in Crimea in May 2014.

He 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.

About 70 Ukrainians are political prisoners in Russia and occupied Crimea. This list also includes Ukrinform journalist Roman Sushchenko, who was sentenced to 12 years of imprisonment in a high-security penal colony on fabricated charges of "espionage."
