Ukrinform correspondent Roman Sushchenko, illegally convicted in Russia, was visited by his wife and daughter in a prison colony for a three-day visit, a defender of the prisoner Mark Feigin wrote on Twitter.
“The wife and daughter of Ukrainian political prisoner Roman Sushchenko visited him with a long, three-day visit at VK-11 in Kirov-Chepetsk, while Roman is still alright,” he wrote.
Feigin also expressed the hope that “the new authorities in Kyiv will deal with the exchange of Sushchenko for Vyshinsky.”
Roman Sushchenko, a correspondent stationed in France, was illegally detained on September 30, 2016, in Moscow, where he arrived with a private trip from Paris, where he worked for the last 6 years. On October 7, 2016, he was charged with espionage.
The Moscow City Court sentenced Sushchenko to 12 years imprisonment in a colony of the strict regime on June 4, 2018. On September 12, 2018, the Supreme Court of Russia considered the ruling lawful.
Sushchenko was transferred to the colony number 11 in the Kirov region (Kirovo-Chepetsk city, the village of Utrobino).
