Bundestag event and meetings in Berlin with Oleg Sentsov, CCL & FIDU

Last week, Oleg Sentsov, Ukrainian filmmaker and former political prisoner gave his first speech abroad, in Berlin, after being released from Russian prison on September 7. To this purpose, on September 26, Members of Bundestag Frank Schwabe MP (SPD) and Manuel Sarazzin MP (Alliances 90/The Greens) welcomed Sentsov and our delegation to a parliamentary event at the Bundestag. Alongside Center for Civil Liberties (CCL) and the Italian Federation for Human Rights (FIDU) we discussed the effectiveness of international human rights mechanisms in the context of the situation in the Russian Federation, Turkey and Kazakhstan, and, particularly, each state’s capacity to comply with international obligations.
