Finland calls on Russia to provide Ukrainian film director Oleg Sentsov with medical treatment and to release all Ukrainian political prisoners.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland wrote this on Twitter.

"Health of Ukrainian film director Oleg Sentsov in prison is deteriorating rapidly. We expect Russia to provide him with medical treatment and to release all illegally detained Ukrainian citizens," the statement reads.

Earlier, well-known French artists and officials, including French Minister of Culture Francoise Nyssen, as well as film directors Jean-Luc Godard and Ken Loach, wrote an open letter calling for the release of Oleg Sentsov and international mobilization to accelerate this process.

Sentsov, who was illegally sentenced to 20 years in a penal colony, on May 14, 2018 declared a hunger strike demanding the release of all Ukrainian political prisoners of the Kremlin. On May 28, Sentsov agreed to supportive therapy.

On August 7, his lawyer Dmitry Dinze said that Sentsov's health condition had deteriorated.
