Russia: ‘I am very grateful’ - Golunov’s mother thankful for support

Russian Federation, Moscow
June 11, 2019 at 20:17 GMT +00:00 · Published

Svetlana Golunova, mother of investigative journalist Ivan Golunov, thanked everyone who supported her son while he remained in custody in Moscow on Tuesday.

“If there had been nothing like this they would have trampled, smashed, grinded and no traces would have been found. That is why I bow low to all of you, I am very grateful. We all are great,” she said.

The Meduza journalist was arrested on 6 June on charges of drug trafficking. Police alleged that he was found carrying four grams of methamphetamine in his rucksack and he was charged with drug dealing.

Golunov received an outcry of support from Russian media and celebrities who claimed the charges were trumped up in retaliation for his work.
