MEP Anna Fotyga published on Facebook a letter from Ukrinform journalist Roman Sushchenko in response to the congratulations on his birthday from a group of members of the European Parliament.

“The list of Ukrainian political prisoners and prisoners of war, who are illegally held in Russia, is long. It contains more than a hundred people, and we constantly recall their names in the European Parliament. One of them is journalist Roman Sushchenko, whom a group of MEPs sent birthday greetings two months ago. Today, Anna Fotyga received a letter of thanks from Roman Sushchenko for memory and support. #StopRussianAggression #CrimeaisUkraine #FreeUkrainianPOWs,” reads the post.

The disclosure of the personal letter was agreed to with the family of the political prisoner of the Kremlin by Ukrinform. Sushchenko is a correspondent there.

Dear and highly respected members of the European Parliament: Mark Demesmaeker, Eduard Kukan, Charles Tannock, Michał Boni, Rebecca Harms, Julie Ward and Anna Fotyga,

I am deeply touched by your congratulations and sincere wishes. Thank you.

I, probably, write banal words, but you should know that your words are of great importance to me!


With all respect and cautious optimism,

P.S. Dignity manifests itself in the willingness to defend it.

Ukrinform expressed gratitude to the diplomats of the Mission of Ukraine to the EU, who help European politicians in their efforts to support Ukrainian political prisoners and, in particular, contributed to the timely sending of the congratulatory letter from the MEPs to Roman Sushchenko.
