He was not allowed to speak at the ceremony, European Oscar

Сенцову не дали выступить на церемонии вручения европейского Оскара

Ukrainian Director refused to go to the party after the ceremony because it was held in the restaurant.

Ukrainian film Director, a former prisoner in Russia Oleg Sentsov visited in Berlin, a 32-th award ceremony of the European film Academy – European Oscar. He said this on his page in Facebook on Sunday, December 8.

According to the Ukrainian, he was not allowed to speak from the stage.

“Sit in the same row with all these people: Binoche, Herzog, Holland, Wenders, Almodovar, Pawlikowski it was a great honor for me. And when I was called to the scene and all these legends of cinema stood up and started to clap, it was a very amazing moment. However, for some reason I was not allowed to speak either for fear of my imperfect English or political topics, without which I would not have done,” wrote the Director.

Further Sentsov learned that the party after the ceremony will be held in the restaurant.

“Of course, I didn’t go there – we arranged their own separate Ukrainian party, and the Europeans could not understand what the problem is in the title. For them there is no problem, and it explains a lot, because it is not fired from mortars”, – said Sentsov.

Recall, November 26, Oleh Sentsov in the European Parliament presented the Sakharov prize For freedom of thought. Ukrainian in his speech before the European Parliament indicated that it has this award not for himself, but for all political prisoners held in Russia.

It was also reported that Sentsov received the documents on honorary citizenship of Paris. Then he met with the mayor of the French stalinian Hidalgo “behind closed doors”.
