“We welcome the decision of the European Parliament to award this year’s Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought to Ukrainian film director Oleg Sentsov. Since 2014, the Czech Republic has been following closely the case of Oleg Sentsov, illegally held in a Russian prison along with dozens of other Ukrainian citizens,” the Ministry’s statement reads.
