The Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights Valeria Lutkovska has sent a letter to her Russian counterpart Tatiana Moskalkova asking her to clarify the details of the detention, confinement conditions, as well as observance of the rights of the detained in Russia Roman Sushchenko, a journalist of the National Information Agency "Ukrinform" in France.
“We are interested in several aspects: the reason and details of his detention; what he was accused of; whether his rights to defense are observed and whether he was subjected to psychological or physical pressure,” said the representative of the Ukrainian Ombudswoman Michael Chaplyga in his comments to a QHA correspondent.
He also said that a telephone conversation between Lutkovska and Moskalkova about the detention of Roman Sushchenko is scheduled on October 6.
It was reported earlier that the FSB officers detained a Ukrainian journalist Roman Sushchenko on suspicion of "espionage" in Moscow on September 30.
Lefortovo court in Moscow made a decision on October 1 to arrested him for two months.
Kyiv named the detention of the journalist a provocation, and the accusations of espionage evidence-free.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin plans to raise the issue of the detention of Sushchenko during his visit to Strasbourg (France) on Days of discussion of Ukrainian reforms in the Council of Europe.
