KIEV, August 25 /TASS/. Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin suggests introducing the Sentsov and Savchenko sanctions list similar to the US Magnitsky list.
"I believe that we should gradually start talking about the Sentsov and Savchenko sanctions lists," Klimkin told Ukrainian TV channel Inter on Tuesday commenting the conviction of Ukrainian activists, Oleg Sentsov and Alexander Kolchenko, by a Russian court.
"We need a concrete sanctions list like it was in Magnitsky’s case. We are going to work on that," Klimkin added.
The North Caucasus District Military Court on Tuesday found Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov guilty of conspiracy to commit terrorist attacks in Crimea and sentenced him to 20 years in prison.
His accomplice Alexander Kolchenko got ten years in prison.
According to investigators, Sentsov set up in Crimea a terrorist group, which set two offices on fire in Simferopol, Crimea’s capital, in the spring of 2014 and was planning to blow up a statue of Bolshevik revolution leader Vladimir Lenin.
Sentsov and Kolchenko pleaded not guilty and said the charges were politicized.
Prosecutors had sought a term of 23 years for Sentsov and 12 years for Kolchenko.
