‘I met with Sushchenko; it wasn’t long, however, because the work day was almost over. We talked for some 15 minutes, and agreed to continue tomorrow. We’ll be preparing for the interview. He never admitted his guilt. He feels fine; yes, of course, he’s under psychological pressure but that’s as far as it goes. He’s a tough guy; one will have to try very hard to crack him,’ Mark Feygin, Russian lawyer, the defender of Roman Sushchenko, said while talking to 112 Ukraine TV channel.   

‘Yesterday, he refused to speak with the state lawyer, because he already knew I would defend him in court. They tried to convince him but eventually failed. He’s got a radio in his cell, and he heard on the news that I would protect his interests in court,’ the lawyer said.

He once again reiterated that the charges against the reporter are groundless.
