MOSCOW (QHA) -

Ukrainian journalist Roman Sushchenko illegally kept in the Russian detention center asks another prisoner of the Kremlin Oleg Sentsov to give up the hunger strike, the human rights activist Mark Feygin stated after meeting with Sushchenko in Lefortovo detention center in Moscow.

According to the lawyer, Sushchenko is looking forward to meeting with the Ukrainian Ombudsman Lyudmila Denisova.

“Roman Sushchenko conveys words of support to the Ukrainian Ombudsman Lyudmila Denisova and very much asks everyone from whom it may depend to assist her in meeting with the political prisoner. He is waiting for her as well. I will add from myself that the situation with the non-admission of Lyudmila Denisova to Ukrainian political prisoners is becoming quite indecent and unscrupulous,” Feygin wrote.

Feygin further noted that the Kremlin, "while smugly enjoying the World Cup, has completely lost the shame, coming up with excuses for obstructing Denisova."

Earlier it was reported that the Ukrainian embassy in Russia had requested a permission from Ukrainian representatives to visit the imprisoned Ukrainian journalist Roman Sushchenko.

The Russians did not allow the Ukrainian Ombudsman to Roman Sushchenko in the Lefortovo detention center. Lawyer Mark Feygin called non-admission of Denisova to Sushchenko in the Lefortovo detention centre "an outrageous violation of rights."

Previously, the Moscow court sentenced Roman Sushenko to 12 years of strict regime. Mark Feygin noted that after the announcement of the sentence to Roman Sushchenko there would be on opportunity to begin negotiations on his exchange and return to Ukraine.
