Activists and protesters are expected to gather in the city’s central square to sign postcards to prisoners which will then be put into one big album, reports Zik quoting ‘Solidarity with the Crimean Prisoners’ NGO, the rally’s organizer.
It was reported earlier that a Russian court dismissed an appeal against a prison sentence imposed on Kolchenko and Senchenko at a May 30 hearing.
Just a reminder: Ukrainian film-maker Oleg Sentsov and activist Alexander Kolchenko were illegally arrested in Russian-occupied Crimea and later tried on fabricated charges of planning and organizing terrorist attacks.
Sentsov was sentenced to 20 years in prison, while Kolchenko, as Sentsov’s alleged accomplice, was imprisoned for 10 years.
Nadezhda Savchenko’s lawyer Mark Feigin sent a letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin urging him to free other Ukrainians, including Yuri Soloshenko, Gennady Afanasiev, Oleg Sentsov Alexander Kolchenko, Alexei Chirniy, Nikolai Karpyuk, Stanislav Klykh, Valentin Vygovskyy, Sergey Litvinov, Hayser Jemil, Alexander Kostenko and others, currently being held in Russian prisons.
