"Tomorrow marks 100 days of O. Sentsov’s hunger strike in Russian prison. Oleg is on the verge of life and death. We call on Russia once again to immediately release the illegally detained, innocent man and the rest of Ukraine’s political prisoners," Linkevičius wrote on Twitter.
As Ukrinform reported, 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, 2018, he declared a hunger strike demanding the release of all Ukrainian political prisoners of the Kremlin. On May 28, Sentsov agreed to supportive therapy.
About 70 Ukrainians are political prisoners in Russia and in the 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."
