Timo Soini, Head of the MFA of Finland called Russia to provide Oleg Sentsov, Ukrainian filmmaker with necessary medical treatment. According to the message of the institution on Twitter.
‘The health condition of Ukrainian political prisoner Oleg Sentsov is rapidly deteriorating in the prison. We expect that Russia will provide him with a medical treatment,’ the official added.

Also, in his request, he called for Russia to release all Ukrainian political prisoners.
As is known, the native of Crimea, film director and political activist, Sentsov has been serving time in the Russian penal colony in Labytnangi since May 2014. This spring, he announced a hunger strike, demanding to release all Ukrainian political prisoners, illegally held by the Kremlin. 

Oleg Sentsov was illegally detained in Crimea in 2014, then taken to Russia. They judged him and sentenced him to 20 years of imprisonment at a high-security penal colony. The prosecutors charged Sentsov with preparing terrorist acts in the occupied Crimea. Sentsov denies his guilt. Ukraine's government, common citizens and the international society - politicians, artists, public figures - urge the Kremlin to release him. 
Sentsov enjoys the wide support of the many in Ukraine and abroad. Rallies, where participants urge to release him, are held worldwide - in Ukraine, Russia, the EU and the U.S.
