Close relatives of Ukrinform journalist Roman Sushchenko, who was illegally convicted in Russia, received the permission for a longer meeting with him in January.

Mark Feygin, public defender of the journalist, told this to Ukrinform.

“Now I can say that close relatives of Roman Sushchenko, wife Anzhelika and daughter Yulia, have received the right to have a longer meeting with him - three days, two nights. This meeting will take place in January,” said Feygin.

As reported, Ukrinform's 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. The Supreme Court of Russia upheld the verdict on September 12.

On October 8, it was reported that Sushchenko had been moved to a penal colony. On November 7, the Russian Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) informed Ukraine's Embassy in Moscow that Sushchenko had been transferred to Penal Colony No. 11 of the FSIN directorate for the Kirov region (the town of Kirovo-Chepetsk, the village of Utrobino).
