Groysman condemns arrest of Ukrinform correspondent Sushchenko

Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman has condemned the arrest of Roman Sushchenko, own correspondent of Ukrinform National News Agency, in Russia.

Groysman wrote this on his Facebook page.

"I personally condemn the arrest of Roman Suschenko and call on the international community and international human rights organizations to speak in favor of the Ukrainian journalist and all other Ukrainian citizens, who have become political prisoners," he wrote.

As reported, Roman Sushchenko was detained on Friday, September 30, in Moscow following Russian media reports accusing him of ‘espionage’. Roman at the time of arrest was on vacation and arrived in Moscow for private purposes. Ukrinform and Sushchenko’s wife concluded an agreement with lawyer Mark Feygin who will defend Roman Sushchenko. Roman Suchshenko is being kept in Moscow's Lefortovo prison.
