"I want to tell more about today's questioning of witnesses invited by the prosecution. First, this is Sushchenko's cousin, a 67-year-old man. He did not say anything significant. It was more interesting with another witness who actually worked under the leadership of intelligence services. He quickly became confused and started giving conflicting evidence. I asked him to read his testimony during the pre-trial investigation. After that, he started saying 'I don't know,' 'I don't remember,'" he told an Ukrinform reporter.
As reported, Ukrinform's correspondent in France, Roman Sushchenko, was detained in violation of international rules on September 30, 2016 in Moscow, where he arrived on a private trip.
On October 7, he was charged with "espionage." Russia's FSB claimed that Sushchenko is a member of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry. The latter denied this allegation.
Moscow City Court extended Sushchenko's arrest until September 16.
