At the beginning of August the address of mother of Oleg Sentsov to Vladimir Putin has come to the Kremlin. The Ukrainian director has gone on an indefinite hunger strike in May of the current year Dmitry Peskov. Photo: Mikhail Mettsel / by TASS It is updated in 17:04B the Kremlin didn't receive a request of the Ukrainian director Oleg Sentsov for pardon therefore it is incorrect to speak about refusal to him in this procedure. It was said by the Russian President's Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov, answering questions of journalists, including Business FM. — whether Really in the Kremlin have refused to Sentsov pardon? The reason is called the lack of the personal address, but how in that case it is possible to explain a situation with Nadezhda Savchenko who was pardoned, as far as we know, without the personal address? — I have nothing to add according to Sentsov. You know that there is a current legislation, you know that it is incorrect to use a phrase here "have refused pardon", probably, from the legal point of view because there was no appeal for pardon. For the rest I have nothing to add. — Whether there was after all an answer of the Kremlin to the letter of mother of Sentsov about which it is told in the Ukrainian media, or wasn't? — I have nothing to add concerning Oleg Sentsov. In the middle of July of the current year Sentsov's mother Lyudmila wrote the President of Russia Vladimir Putin with an appeal for pardon of the son. On Wednesday, August 15, it became known that the Kremlin has allegedly answered the director's mother.

Then Sentsov's documents have to send to the commission on questions of pardon and the head of the territorial subject of the federation which make the preliminary decision on expediency of pardon. By consideration of the application are considered including petitions of relatives, it is emphasized in the answer. The final decision is made by the President of Russia. Now Lyudmila Sentsova's appeal is sent to the acting as the governor of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Area Dmitry Artyukhov for use by preliminary consideration of the plea for mercy of the convict in case of his address according to an established order. Artyukhov didn't receive applications on pardon of the Ukrainian director Oleg Sentsov neither from his mother, nor from him yet, have reported to TASS in the press service of the governor. In the law it is accurately stated that exactly the convict has to address with an appeal for pardon because he, perhaps, itself doesn't want to be pardoned. Exceptions are impossible, at least, such cases wasn't yet, the chairman of Your Legal Attorney Bar Konstantin Trapaidze: says — I think, documents C
