Ukrainian consul to visit Sushchenko next week - Feygin

Mark Feygin, a public defender of Ukrainian journalist Roman Sushchenko, who was illegally convicted in Russia, will visit his client on Wednesday, July 25.

Feygin told this to Ukrinform.

"It is probable that on Wednesday I will be able to visit Roman Sushchenko," Feygin said.

He also specified that Ukrainian Consul in Moscow Hennadiy Breskalenko will "apparently visit Sushchenko at the beginning of next week."

As reported, Ukrinform correspondent in France Roman Sushchenko was illegally detained on September 30, 2016 in Moscow, where he arrived on a private trip.

On October 7, 2016, 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.

On June 4, 2018, the Moscow City Court sentenced Sushchenko to 12 years in a high-security penal colony. On June 5, a complaint was filed against the verdict.
