Parliamentary breakfast with Oleg Sentsov

On 26 November 2019, the Open Dialogue Foundation (ODF) and the Center for Civil Liberties (CCL) hosted a European Parliament breakfast under the title Ukrainian Hostages of the Kremlin: How to Release Them All?. The event was organised upon the initiative of the MEPs Petras Auštrevičius (Renew Europe; Lithuania), Viola von Cramon-Taubadel (Greens/EFA, Germany) and Julie Ward (S&D; UK).

We proudly welcomed Oleg Sentsov, Ukrainian filmmaker, 2018 EP Sakharov Prize Laureate and the most famous former political prisoner in Russia. Sentsov reminded he cannot discuss culture without mentioning the tragic events that are happening to the Ukrainian people in the occupied territories of Crimea and Donbas.
