A rally in support of detained journalists in the Russian Federation, in particular – Ukrinform correspondent Roman Sushchenko was held near the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Kyiv. 112 Ukraine TV Channel reports this.

The action participants staged a "theater of the absurd". The prosecutor's office, the FSB and Roskomnadzor judge were presented by one person - the president of Russia Vladimir Putin, and the cases against journalists are all trumped-up.

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.

Earlier Mark Feygin stated that there are no other perspectives for Ukrainian journalist Roman Sushchenko other than the exchange on some Russian citizens detained or convicted in Kyiv.
