Sentsov wrote in the letter that he doesnt  “intend to lose heart or start whining” and that he is not going to stop his creative or social endeavors.”

“When you read the power of a letter written on Dec. 30, 2018, from prison only now due to prison censorship, you are surprised at the courage of Oleh and his postive mood, despite all the difficult circumstances, ” Gerashchenko said. “This letter encourages you to work further, not to lose hope. We have no right. Ukrainians in Russian prisons show us a strong example.”
