Our interview with Oleg Sentsov in wyborcza.pl!

Boycott of Russian cinematography? I am for a boycott of any product coming from Russia. Whether it's oil, gas or film, it doesn't matter," says Ukrainian director Oleh Sentsov. The winner of the Sakharov Prize, who served five years in a Russian gulag, joined the army after the invasion of Ukraine and is fighting on the frontline in Donbass.
