French president meets freed Ukrainian filmmaker Sentsov | AFP

French President Emmanuel Macron meets with Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov during his visit to Strasbourg to mark the 70th anniversary of the Council of Europe. Sentsov is the highest-profile prisoner released during a recent swap with Russia. Sentsov was arrested in 2014 and was serving a 20-year sentence in a Russian Arctic penal colony for planning “terrorist attacks” in Moscow-annexed Crimea. His jailing sparked a star-studded international campaign calling for his release and he became a symbol of Kiev’s resistance. IMAGES

Russia detains Crimean Tatars for Red Square protest | AFP

Russian police detains seven Crimean Tatars on Red Square as they hold up posters protesting against the persecution of the Muslim ethnic group on the peninsula. The indigenous community has largely opposed Moscow’s 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine, and the protest comes on the eve of a Supreme Court hearing for four Crimean Tatars convicted of plotting an uprising. A group of around 18 men stood in line on the cobbled square holding posters, including photographs of prisoners and slogans such as “End repressions” and “Our children are not terrorists”.
