An exchange is the only way to get illegally imprisoned Ukrainian journalist Roman Sushchenko out of Russian prison.

First Deputy Information Policy Minister of Ukraine Emine Dzheppar said this in an interview with Ukrinform.

"For us, the exchange is the only tool to get Roman Sushchenko out of Russia. This option is discussed, and I think that it will be implemented. This issue takes time," she said.

As reported, on September 12, the Russian Supreme Court upheld the verdict delivered by the Moscow City Court to Ukrinform journalist Roman Sushchenko, who was sentenced to 12 years in a high-security penal colony.

Ukrinform's Paris-based correspondent 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.
