In April, parents of the Ukrainian journalist Roman Sushchenko, who is imprisoned in Moscow, received a letter from him dated January 28, the National Union of Journalists of Ukraine reported.
The political prisoner Sushchenko writes that his "physical and mental states are normal."
“So do not worry about me and do not blame yourselves, that you can not help me specifically. My advice to you is: Take what has happened to me in a philosophical way ... The main thing is that you, my dear ones, like my family, will never be ashamed for what happened to me ...,” he writes.
The imprisoned journalist points out that physical violence is not applied to him, and he has already "adapted" to the psychological one.
“Support from my relatives, journalists - both Ukrainian and foreign, our public and international organizations helped me a lot.”
Earlier QHA reported that correspondent of Ukrainian National Information Agency "Ukrinform" in France Roman Sushchenko was illegally detained on September 30 in Moscow, where he arrived on personal business. In the evening on October 2, Russian media reported that Sushchenko was kept in custody in Moscow "Lefortovo" prison on charges of espionage. The FSB claims that Sushchenko is a member of the Chief of the Defense Intelligence of the Ukraine.
January 24, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe adopted a resolution demanding the Russian Federation to release Ukrainian journalists Roman Sushchenko and Nikolai Semena, as well as filmmaker Oleg Sentsov.
