‘Russian Federal Penitentiary Service, burn in hell!’ Sentsov burns his prison uniform.

Ukrainian film director Oleg Sentsov, who has been recently freed from Russian captivity, said goodbye to "the most hated thing on Earth."

"In front of relatives and friends, the former political prisoner doused with petrol and set fire to his prison uniform which he wore in Russian prison," the ATR TV channel reports.

“This prison uniform is my most hated thing on Earth. The Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia, burn in hell,” Sentsov said.

As reported, the prisoner swap between Ukraine and the Russian Federation took place on September 7. In particular, 24 Ukrainian sailors - prisoners of war and 11 political prisoners, including film director Oleg Sentsov and activist Oleksandr Kolchenko, returned to Ukraine. They were detained by representatives of Russian special services in Crimea in May 2014 on charges of allegedly plotting terrorist attacks on the peninsula.

In August 2015, the North Caucasus District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don sentenced Sentsov to 20 years in maximum security penal colony and Kolchenko to 10 years on trumped-up charges of plotting terrorist attacks in the territory of Crimea. Both denied their guilt.
