Almost a year in a Russian prison. The court once again to extend the detention of journalist Sushchenko
Recall, 30 September 2016, Roman Sushchenko was arrested in Moscow, where he arrived on a private trip. On 7 October he was charged with “espionage”. The FSB believes Ukrainian employee of the Main intelligence Directorate of the defense Ministry of Ukraine. Russian security forces claim that Sushchenko “purposefully collected data of state secret, the activities of the Armed forces and of National guard troops of the Russian Federation”.
The journalist denies all the charges. The Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine demands from the Russian side to stop the illegal detention of Ukrainian journalists and to ensure its smooth return to Ukraine.
