Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov, who now services a sentence in the territory of the Russian Federation, has been awarded the PEN/Barbara Goldsmith Freedom to Write Award.

Ukrainian MP Mustafa Nayyem posted this on Facebook.

As noted, Sentsov was awarded this prize "for the courage to oppose the intolerance to freedom of expression and conscientious dissent."

As reported, the Russian court sentenced Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov on trumped-up charges of plotting terrorist acts to 20 years in a penal colony. Sentsov is now serving sentence in Yakutsk. Russia rejected Ukraine’s appeal for extradition of the filmmaker.
