Kiev: Ukrainian director and former political prisoner Oleg Sentsov received the Sakharov Prize in the European Parliament. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.
Sentsov in the European Parliament said that Russia does not want peace in the Donbass and in Ukraine.
“Now there is a lot of talk about reconciliation with Russia, some negotiations. I don’t believe Putin and urge you not to believe him. The Russians are sure to cheat, they don’t want peace in Donbass, they don’t want peace in Ukraine. They want to see Ukraine on their knees", - he said in a speech.
We will remind, earlier President of the European Parliament David Sassoli said that he was ready to personally bring to Ukraine the Sakharov Prize awarded to Sentsov if he could not pick it up himself for health reasons.
