According to the official statement of the Russian Federation, Oleg Sentsov, who was sentenced to 20 years in prison on false charges, – a citizen of Russia. And therefore, according to the Russian authorities, it cannot be changed or to give Ukraine any other conditions.
However, as it became known, in the prison documents, prisoner number of the citizen of Ukraine. More precisely, a strange state “Republic of Ukraine”.
“Convicted Sentsov O. G., a citizen of the Republic of Ukraine, arrived on stage on 9 October 2017. In the individual case an EU passport 477125 issued November 12, 1997”, – stated in the certificate.
Appropriate certificate issued the Director’s lawyer Dmitry Dinze on his page in Facebook.
Interestingly, you say that now, Putin’s press Secretary Dmitry Peskov, on the days of the questioner, who is Oleg Sentsov “de jure, even if Russians themselves do not recognize”. Sentsov considers himself a citizen of Ukraine.
