Kherson City Court postponed the consideration of the case on Kyrylo Vyshynsky, the Head of RIA News, due to his health condition, as the correspondent said on air of 112 Ukraine.
“The session was postponed as Kyrylo Vyshynsky doesn’t feel well. According to his lawyer, around a week ago he had a heart attack and now his health condition is bad,” he told.
His lawyers asked the court to postpone the consideration of the case so that the accused could undergo a medical examination.
“The court confirmed this decision and allowed Vyshynsky to undergo a medical examination. The court session will not take place until Vyshynsky undergoes examination,” the correspondent said.
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. Also, Russia promised to assume reciprocal measures. Then, the state sent a protest note over searches at the mass media office.
Later it was reported that 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.
Recently, there are statements about his exchange for the convicted Ukrainians kept in Russia.
