Parliament to consider appeal on Sushchenko on Thursday – Bryhynets

On Thursday, October 6, the Verkhovna Rada will consider an appeal to the international community with the requirement to assist in the release of Ukrainian journalist Roman Sushchenko who was illegally arrested in Moscow.

MP from the Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction Oleksandr Bryhynets said this to an Ukrinform correspondent.

"I think that MPs will vote onThursday," he said, expressing his belief that this statement of case will be supported by the majority.

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.
