The Russian side has not taken any action in response to the numerous requests of Ukrainian diplomats for a meeting with imprisoned Ukrainian director Oleg Sentsov, said MFA spokeswoman Mariana Betsa

“All of our appeals, i.e. the appeals of our Embassy in the Russian Federation and the consular office in Novosibirsk concerning a meeting with Oleg Sentsov are ignored,” noted Mariana Betsa in an exclusive comment for “Interfax-Ukraine” agency.

She also noted that during the last 4 months, Ukraine has sent numerous requests for a meeting, but Russia invariably ignored all of them.

As reported before, in August 2015, the North Caucasus District Military Court found O.Sentsov A.Kolchenko guilty of creating terrorist community in Crimea, committing two acts of terrorism, preparing another terroristic act, and of an attempt to purchase explosives and illegal weapons possession. O.Sentsov was sentenced to 20 years in prison, A.Kolchenko has got 10 years. In early May 2016, O.Sentsov and A.Kolchenko filled documents for the extradition to Ukraine.

Kyiv has repeatedly highlighted the political causes in “Sentsov-Kolchenko case.”
