Good morning, World! Good morning, Ukraine! The morning after…. As the euphoria, emotions and excitement of yesterday die down, let us never forget Oleh Sentsov’s first words as a free man:
“All the guys and I are very happy to be back home. I’d like to express my deepest gratitude to all the people who’ve helped us, our families, during all these years. Those who fought for our liberation and made it happen. Thank you so much. I hope that all the other prisoners will be released very soon. But, even when the very last prisoner is released, our fight will not be over! Victory is very far off. The enemy is strong and has no intention of giving up. But, we will achieve this victory; we have no other choice. Slava Ukrayini! (Glory to Ukraine!)”

REMINDER! 3280 Ukrainian citizens have been freed from RF and ORDLO since 2014. 227 Ukrainians are still illegally imprisoned in occupied Donbas; 86 in Russia and occupied Crimea.
