Ukraine: Lawyer seeks Vyshinky’s release

Ukraine, Kiev
July 15, 2019 at 14:29 GMT +00:00 · Published

The lawyer of RIA Novosti Ukraine Editor-in-Chief Kirill Vyshinsky, Andrei Domanski, said that the defence is going to ask for his client’s release on bail at the next court hearing, speaking to journalists outside Kiev’s Podolsky court on Monday.

“We will insist on changing the preventive measure, taking into consideration all the circumstances,” Domanski said.

Earlier the court decided to postpone Vyshinky’s hearing for July 17.

Prosecutor Evgeniy Komarovski said that at the next hearing “Prosecutors will call for the court to prolong the detention for Vyshinsky.”

“Those risks that were taken into consideration in previous decisions still exists. There is still firm evidence and confirmation that Vyshinsky can try to escape the justice and hide from the investigation,” said the prosecutor.

The RIA Novosti journalist was detained in Kiev on May 15, 2018. He is being held on suspicion of treason, which carries a prison sentence of up to 15 years.
