Oleg Sentsov’s case

Front of a flyer (known as ‘postcards’ in PEN’s campaigns) used during one of the American Centre’s 2018 campaigns, which called for the release of Ukranian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov, who is depicted here. In May 2014, Sentsov was imprisoned in Russia for protesting against the annexation of Crimea. The American Centre, along with PEN International and other PEN Centres, campaigned for his release, and on 7 September 2019 Sentsov was freed from a penal colony after more than five years of detention. In 2017 Sentsov won the PEN/Barbey Freedom to Write Award.

La défense d'Oleg Sentsov

Recto d'un prospectus (connus sous le nom de «cartes postales» dans le cadre des campagnes PEN) utilisé en 2018 lors de l'une des campagnes du Centre américain appelant à la libération du cinéaste ukrainien Oleg Sentsov, que l'on peut voir ici. En mai 2014, Sentsov fut emprisonné en Russie pour avoir protesté contre l'annexation de la Crimée. Le Centre américain, en collaboration avec PEN International et d'autres Centres dans le monde, a fait campagne pour sa libération, et le 7 septembre 2019, Sentsov était libéré de sa colonie pénitentiaire après plus de cinq années de détention. En 2017, Sentsov a remporté le PEN/Barbey Freedom to Write Award.

El caso de Oleg Sentsov

El Centro Americano, junto con PEN Internacional y Centros de todo el mundo, hizo campaña por su liberación.
