Day 100 for Oleg Sentsov: Crimean-born filmmaker on hunger strike
Date created : Latest update :
Crimean-born filmmaker Oleg Sentsov is now on day 100 of a hunger strike in an Arctic penal colony and is close to dying, his advocates claim. We take a closer look at this outspoken critic of Russia's annexation of Crimea. He is one of dozens of Ukrainians languishing in Russian jails, awaiting an eventual prisoner swap as the low level conflict between Kiev and Moscow's proxies endures in the Russian-speaking east of Ukraine.
