“I will probably meet Roman Sushchenko on Friday during the acquaintance with the large sixth volume of the case. At the same time, I will take part in the selection of lawyers to visit clients in the Lefortovo prison next week. I can also say that psychological pressure has still been put on Roman Volodymyrovych, he has been offered to admit guilt," said Feygin.
As reported, Ukrinform's correspondent in France, Roman Sushchenko, in violation of international rules, was detained on September 30, 2016 in Moscow, where he arrived on a private trip. On October 7, he was charged with "espionage." Russia's FSB stated that Sushchenko is a member of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry. The latter denied this statement.
On November 27, Moscow City Court extended Sushchenko's detention for two more months - until January 30, 2018. The trial is likely to begin in January.
