On 26 February, the day of the annexation of Crimea by Russia, on the initiative of PEN America, multiple events and demonstrations shall take place around the world supporting filmmaker Oleg Sentsov who is serving a 20-year prison sentence in Siberia for having defended freedom of expression.

FIDH, PEN America, France Culture, Un weekend à l’Est, Les Nouveaux Dissidents, Les écrans de Paris, Reflet Medicis, Transfuge and Présence Ukrainienne l’Harmattan organise in Paris an evening in the cinema Reflet Médicis (3 rue Champollion, 75005). The event shall be opened by former Minister of Justice of France Christiane Taubira followed by reading of extracts of Oleg Sentsov’s stories. The event shall end with a documentary screening "The Trial: the state of Russia vs Oleg Sentsov".

"Physically nobody touches me but one should understand that this system punishes and humiliates in a vicious way, without resorting to brutal force. [...] I trust you’re doing all you can in my support as well as in support of other political prisoners. Just know that here law enforcement agents have their own logic."
