SOCHI (Sputnik) — Long arrived in Sochi to take part in an expanded meeting of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC).

"Assange was restricted of Internet access during the US elections. The decision on Internet access will be made later," Long told reporters in the Russian resort of Sochi.

Assange has been residing at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012 for fear of being extradited to Sweden where he has been accused of rape. The WikiLeaks founder denies the allegations, saying they are part of Washington's efforts to get him handed over to the United States where he is wanted for leaking thousands of top-secret documents.
