Campaigning for Oleg Sentsov

Two sides of a flyer (known as ‘postcards’ in PEN’s campaigns) used in the American Centre’s 2018 campaign advocating for the release of the Ukranian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov, who was imprisoned in May 2014 for protesting against the annexation of Crimea. The front of the postcard (above) shows a photograph of Vladimir Putin’s car passing a group of campaigners in Helsinki, who rallied for Senstov’s release during the Trump-Putin Summit that took place on 16 July 2018. The back of the postcard (below) summarises the facts of Sentsov’s persecution, outlining a timeline of developments since his arrest and incarceration. In 2017 the American Centre awarded Sentsov the PEN/Barbey Freedom to Write Award. On 7 September 2019 Sentsov was freed from a penal colony after more than five years of detention.

Campagne pour Oleg Sentsov

Deux côtés d'un prospectus (connus sous le nom de «cartes postales» dans le cadre des campagnes PEN) utilisé en 2018 lors de la campagne du Centre américain appelant à la libération du cinéaste ukrainien Oleg Sentsov, emprisonné en Russie en mai 2014 pour avoir protesté contre l'annexation de la Crimée. Le recto de la carte postale (en haut) montre une photo de la voiture de Vladimir Putin dépassant un groupe de militants rassemblés à Helsinki pour demander la libération de Sentsov pendant le Sommet Trump-Putin, qui a eu lieu le 16 juillet 2018. Le verso de la carte postale (en bas) résume les faits entourant la persécution subie par Sentsov, présentant les événement de manière chronologique depuis son arrestation et son incarcération. En 2017, le Centre américain remettait à Sentsov le PEN/Barbey Freedom to Write Award. Le 7 septembre 2019, Sentsov était libéré de sa colonie pénitentiaire après plus de cinq ans de détention.

Haciendo campaña para Oleg Sentsov

Dos caras de un folleto (llamados «postales» en las campañas PEN) utilizado en la campaña del Centro Americano para la liberación del cineasta ucraniano Oleg Sentsov, encarcelado en mayo de 2014 por protestar contra la anexión de Crimea. La primera cara (encima) muestra una fotografía del coche de Vladimir Putin pasando delante de un grupo de protestantes en Helsinki, Finlandia, que pedían la liberación de Sentsov durante la cumbre Trump-Putin el 16 de julio de 2018. La cara trasera (debajo) resume las claves de la persecución de Sentsov, con una cronología de acontecimientos desde su detención y encarcelamiento. En 2017, el Centro Americano concedió a Oleg Sentsov el premio PEN/Barbey Freedom to Write. El 7 de septiembre de 2019, Sentsov fue liberado de una colonia penal después de más de cinco años detenido.
