Lawyer Mark Feygin predicts that the correspondent of Ukrinform Roman Sushchenko will be put in the cell with some of the VIP-defendants. He said this to 112 Ukraine TV Channel.
"I saw Sushchenko yesterday. I visited him in prison, we talked with him, and I brought him the documents to study. He has a good state of health. He is preparing for the cell change. He received another package on Friday, he started to receive Russian newspapers, this is a good sign. The cells are for two prisoners, so I think it will be one of the VIP-persons under investigation, there are many of them in Lefortovo prison", the lawyer said.
He recalled that he would go to France in the next 3 weeks to achieve the country's intervention in the case of his client.
"As soon as they let me, I will go there. There will be held a series of meetings and a press conference on the occasion to urge the French establishment to intervene in Roman’scase. France has the best relations with the Kremlin, than all the rest of the Normandy Four countries. Therefore, we look forward to their help", Feygin added.
Ukrainian journalist Roman Sushchenko, who works for Ukrinform news agency, was found in pre-trial detention facility of Lefortovo prison (Moscow). Open Russia, the group of Russian human rights activists, reported this at their official website on Sunday night.
According to Sushchenko, the law enforcers put psychological pressure on him; they didn’t let him call home and tell the wife he was arrested. The FSB, Russian federal security service, provided Sushchenko with a lawyer.
Sushchenko asked the human rights watchers to contact with Ukrainian consul in Moscow. The diplomat already confirmed officially that the reporter was arrested in Russia.
