And most importantly, Boris has signed the letter to the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation to take urgent measures and overturn Oleg Sentsov, Alexander Kol'chenko and Gennadi Afanasyev’s disproportionate sentences imposed on charges of terrorism. He called to present them with the appropriate charge or release them,” Nikitin reports.
