UCC promises to advocate for rights of all Ukrainians imprisoned by Russia.

The Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC) will continue to advocate for the rights of all Ukrainians imprisoned by Russia.

National President of the UCC Alexandra Chyczij said this while commenting on the recent visit of Ukrainian filmmaker and former political prisoner of the Russian regime Oleg Sentsov to Canada.

"His story of courage in the face of the unimaginable cruelty of his Russian jailers is an inspiration, and the UCC will continue to advocate strongly for the rights of all Ukrainians imprisoned by Russia," Chyczij said.

She added that the UCC had been honoured to welcome Mr. Sentsov to Canada, and to hear his call in support of the political prisoners suffering at the hands of the Russian regime.

As reported, Oleg Sentsov visited Canada last week. In Ottawa on February 4 and 5, he met with the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, the Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Deputy Prime Minister of Canada, the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Foreign Affairs, and the Honourable Andrew Scheer, Leader of the Opposition.
