Mark Feygin, the defense lawyer for the Ukrainian journalist of Ukrinform, Roman Sushchenko, has told UNIAN he obtained permission to visit his client in a Moscow-based pre-trial detention center.
”I got a permission, now I am entering the Lefortovo pre-trial detention center right now to see Roman,” said Feygin.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the FSB has detained in Moscow a correspondent of Ukrinform news agency Roman Sushchenko, labeling him a ”colonel of the Ukrainian military intelligence who had been purposefully collecting classified information on the activities of the armed forces and the National Guard”.
Charges were pressed against Sushchenko for espionage.
The Ukrainian Defense Ministry has stated that Sushchenko has no relation to it.
Mark Feygin October 3 said that the defense has appealed the court`s decision on Sushchenko`s arrest.
