PARIS | Macron, Putin talk about hunger-striking Ukraine filmmaker
PARIS — French President Emmanuel Macron has told Russian President Vladimir Putin about his concern for a Ukrainian filmmaker who is on a hunger strike in a Russian jail.
The French president’s office said Macron and Putin spoke by telephone. The presidency says Macron urged the Russian leader to find a humanitarian solution since Oleg Sentsov’s health “seems to be dangerously deteriorating.”
The statement says Putin pledged to release information about Sentsov, who spent his 89th day without food Friday.
