Heartbreaking and disgusting that Republicans keep going to Russia, showering Putin with honor & praise (@RandPaul the latest) while the Kremlin’s top political prisoner filmmaker Oleg Sentsov lays literally dying. apnews.com/amp/72de667760… #Ukraine #Crimea #FreeSentsov #Sentsov
France's Macron to raise hunger striker Oleg Sentsov in call with Putin

Shame on US. Republicans including @RandPaul & Trump himself keep meeting with the Kremlin & not a single one mentioned Russia’s outrageous jailing of hostages from Crimea & Ukraine. reuters.com/article/us-fra…
First photos of filmmaker Oleg Sentsov, day 88 into a hungry strike protest to free dozens of other hostages from Ukraine held in Russian prisons. Oleg was arrested in Crimea, sentenced to 20yrs in a Stalinist show trial. (Background reading @mashagessen newyorker.com/news/our-colum…)

What a Russian disinformation campaign looks like: gaslighting, lies, whataboutism and the requisite FU trolling—to deny, distract, dismay. #Butina is literally now the face of Kremlin MFA. Complete w/ hashtag #FreeMariaButina—while Russia jails political prisoners¡!#FreeSentsov
btw This crazy "#FreeMariaButina" disinformation campaign advanced directly from the Russian Foreign Ministry kinda proves US was right to argue Russian diplomats might scoop her up, making her a flight risk. Kudos to prosecutors & judge for the right call rferl.org/a/guns-sex-and…
Maria Butina gets around. Before her gig infiltrating NRA & Republicans, she pushed Russian propaganda in E Ukraine to promote Russia's invasion. At 2014 Donbas rally she trashed new Kyiv govt & said ppl should support "separatists" enigma.ua/articles/krasn…

On Sunday, we locked arms with other activists from around the world at a mass demonstration organized to ​counter the summit between Presidents Trump and Putin with a message of democracy, human rights, and peace. #HelsinkiCalling
We joined Natalia Kaplan, the cousin of Oleg Sentsov—now on day 65 of a hunger strike in a Russian penal camp—to call for the release of all political prisoners held in Russia.
Putin gets the message: We were front and center among the crowd demanding that Putin #FreeSentsov as he passed by on his way to the meeting with Trump.

In a few minutes, PEN America will be co-hosting a screening of Arnold Kurov’s “The Trial,” a documentary about Oleg Sentsov, together with @MovingImageNYC. The screening will be followed by a discussion with @mashagessen and the producer Max Tuula. Stay tuned for updates!
“People in Eastern Europe really know what this regime is,” producer Max Tuula is about to explain the process of creation of “The Trial.” It is the first screening in the U.S. #FreeSentsov
“He [Sentsov] is the kind of person who would go and do things, like he is doing with his current hunger strike, because he wants to make an impact,” says Max Tuula about Oleg Sentsov, who he knows personally. “This is why the Russian regime chose him as a scapegoat.”

GOP Senators to visit Russia for July 4—Independence Day. First official US delegation since the Kremlin attacked our democracy to elect Trump will reportedly include @SenShelby, @SenJohnKennedy, @SenatorHoeven. Nobody from Foreign Relations, Intel Cmtes nydailynews.com/news/world/ny-…
Are GOP senators visiting Russia now as another prelude to a Trump-Putin summit? Why are Republicans making nice with the authoritarian govt that attacked our election, wages war on our allies, & is partially responsible for our daily Trump nightmare?? And on Independence Day ffs
