MOSCOW, November 2. /TASS/. Journalist Kirill Vyshinsky arrested in Ukraine should be released without further delay, as he pursued only his professional activities, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said.
“We believe that Vyshinsky should be released immediately. This is not the issue of any exchanges,” the Kremlin spokesman stressed, when asked why Moscow was opposed to exchanging Vyshinsky for Ukrainian national Roman Sushchenko convicted of espionage in Russia. Peskov stressed that Vyshinsky’s arrest was “a direct violation of all international rules in general, the press freedom principle, because he was actually arrested for his journalistic activities.”
