PEN Ukraine in cooperation with the International Renaissance Foundation (http://www NULL.irf NULL.ua/en/) announces a competition for the translation of Oleg Sentsov’s book of stories into three foreign languages: English, German, and Polish.
The project will be implemented within the mini-grants program of PEN Ukraine Translation Fund Grants, which aims to support the translation of works by Ukrainian authors into foreign languages.
Prominent Ukrainian writer and filmmaker Oleg Sentsov was sentenced to 20 years in prison in August 2015 on spurious terrorism charges after a grossly unfair trial by a Russian military court, marred by allegations of torture. He has been on hunger strike since 14 May 2018 to urge the Russian authorities to release all Ukrainians unfairly imprisoned in Russia. PEN International is calling for his immediate release.
