Russia, notably the case of Ukrainian political prisoner Oleg Sentsov 

The European Parliament adopted by 485 votes to 76 with 66 abstentions a resolution on Russia, notably the case of Ukrainian political prisoner Oleg Sentsov.

The resolution was tabled by the EPP, S&D, ECR, ALDE, and Greens/EFA groups.

Members cited the case of Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov, who opposed the illegal annexation of the Crimean Peninsula by Russia, was arrested in May 2014 in connection with alleged activities conducted in Crimea, and has allegedly been subjected to torture and severe mistreatment leading to the illegal extraction of depositions that have subsequently been given legal value.

Parliament demanded that the Russian authorities immediately and unconditionally release Oleg Sentsov, who began a hunger strike on 14 May 2018, and release all the other 70 illegally detained Ukrainian citizens in Russia and on the Crimean peninsula.
