"It has now been decided that Sentsov will come to the European Parliament to address the foreign affairs council on Mon 25 Nov. I guess he will receive the Sakharov prize during the EP plenary later that week," Jozwiak wrote on Twitter on October 17, 2019.

As UNIAN reported earlier, 24 Ukrainian POW sailors captured by Russian special forces near the Kerch Strait in November 2018, and 11 political prisoners were returned by Russia to Ukraine as part of a prisoner exchange on September 7. The political prisoners include Roman Sushchenko, Oleh Sentsov, Oleksandr Kolchenko, Volodymyr Balukh, Stanislav Klykh, Mykola Karpyuk, Oleksiy Syzonovych, Pavlo Hryb, Edem Bekirov, Yevhen Panov, and Artur Panov.
