MEPs Ask EU High Representative Mogherini To Facilitate Release Of Journalist Suschenko

Members of the European Parliament have asked the European Union's High Representative Federica Mogherini to facilitate release of the Ukrinform national information agency's journalist Roman Suschenko, who is detained in Russia.


Lawyer Mark Feygin announced this on Twitter, Ukrainian News reports.

"A group of European deputies have appealed to the Commissioner Mogherini over the fate of Ukrainian journalist Roman Suschenko, who is under arrest in Russia," he wrote.

According to the attached photocopy of the appeal, the deputies consider this action as a violation of human rights in the Russian Federation and a sign of the potential danger of detention of foreigners visiting Russia.

The European members of parliament asked Mogherini to call on Russia to respect the rights of Ukrainian citizens.

As Ukrainian News earlier reported, a Ukrainian Consul visited Suschenko on October 10.
