Poroshenko: Ukraine Ready To Exchange Russian Militaries Arrested In Ukraine For Ukrainian Journalist Suschenko Arrested In Russia

President Petro Poroshenko states that Ukraine is ready to exchange Russian military men arrested in Ukraine for journalist of the Ukrinform news agency Roman Suschenko arrested in the Russian Federation.

The President of Ukraine said this to Profil publication (the Republic of Austria), Ukrainian News Agency reports.

Petro Poroshenko added that return of illegally arrested Ukrainians is part of the agreements reached in Minsk (Belarus) on February 12, 2015.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, on January 24, 2018, the Moscow city court (the Russian Federation) prolonged the arrest of a Ukrinform national news agency's journalist Roman Suschenko until March 30, 2018.

Ukraine's Ministry of Foreign Affairs called for the international community, organizations for human rights and a representative of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe for the matters of mass media freedoms to take all available measures to release Ukrainian journalist Suschenko arrested in Russia.

On September 30, 2016, Suschenko was arrested by the Federal Security Service of Russia (FSB) on suspicion of espionage.

FSB calls Suschenko a masked employee of the Main Department of the National Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

The Main Department of the National Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine denies that Suschenko is its employee.

The Ukrinform considered the Suschenko's arrest a provocation.
