Ukraine’s Sushchenko to spend another six months in detention in Russia

18:50, 27 March 2018

Ukrainian reporter Roman Sushchenko will remain in the isolation cell in Russia until late September, as the Moscow court extended his detention period.

The jury began to consider his case essentially, with the journalists being kept away from the session hall.

Sushchenko, detained in Moscow in September 2016, denies the charge with espionage, as the Russian prosecutors put it.
