“Today I visited Roman Sushchenko. I can say that he received an appellate decision (of Russian Supreme Court). Another important – Roman got the right to make six phone calls. Also, he can meet with his relatives before prison transfer. He really wants to see his wife and both of the kids,” Feigin said.
Ukrainian Roman Sushchenko, the reporter of Ukrinfiorm news agency, was detained in Moscow in September 2016 and accused by the FSB of espionage. For this, he faced 20 years in prison. Ukraine has appealed to Russia with a demand to release the Ukrainian journalist multiple times. Moscow City Court of Russia has sentenced Roman Sushchenko, the citizen of Ukraine to 12 years in the hard labor colony for the espionage. Russia’s FSB believes that Sushchenko came from Paris to Moscow to visit his cousin in September 2016 to collect information on Mariupol attack. The court session against Sushchenko took place in the closed regime and the court announced only introductory and resume parts of the decision.
