The former RIA News Head Kyrylo Vyshynsky was transferred to Kyiv to the Lukyanivska prison. Andriy Domansky, the lawyer of Vyshynsky, stated this, as TASS reports.

“Now Kyrylo Vyshynsky is in the Lukyanivska prison, where he was transferred on March 14”, - the report said.

According to the report, Vyshynsky was put into the cell without electricity. “The conditions are not very good, so he will complain about this. I will apply to directly to Ukraine’s Ombudsman Lyudmyla Denisova with the issue that Vyshynsky is in the cell without electricity”, - the lawyer said.  

According to the lawyer, “Vyshynsky has been already four days without electricity and a mattress”. There are five persons in his cell.

Domasky outlined that Vyshynsky is not allowed to see his relatives.

Earlier, Kherson City Court extended detention for RIA News Head Kyrylo Vyshynsky to April 8.

On May 15, the SBU considered the detention of the head of RIA News Ukraine agency’s office.

Kremlin has already responded to the incident and called the actions of the SBU outrageous. Besides, Russia promised to assume reciprocal measures. Then, the state sent a protest note over searches at the mass media office.

The actions of Vyshynsky were preliminarily qualified as the state treason. The same day the SBU reported that Kyrylo Vyshynsky is now officially suspected of state treason.
