WikiLeaks lawyers informed that they were considering the offer, but “testimony must conform to a high ethical standard”.

Julian Assange has been on the territory of Ecuador’s Embassy in London since 2012. He can not leave the territory of the diplomatic mission as he fears arrest under Sweden’s request and further extradition in the US. The American authorities accuse Assange of publishing secret data of the State Department. He faces 35 years of imprisonment and even a death penalty. Assange himself denies the accusations.

In March, Assange was deprived of all the communication means due to the violation of a written commitment as of 2017 not to spread statements which would suppose the involvement in the relations with other states. He spread information about Russia’s guiltlessness in Skripal’s case.
