The WikiLeaks founder is currently being held in the high-security Belmarsh prison since Washington filed an appeal over a previous ruling that Assange should not be extradited due to the high risk of suicide.
Sputnik is live from London, as Julian Assange's fiancée Stella Moris and WikiLeaks Editor-in-Chief Kristinn Hrafnsson hold a briefing, while the Royal Court of Justice is preparing to hold a hearing on the whistleblower's extradition.
Assange is awaiting a hearing on his extradition to the United States, where he is accused of espionage for publishing classified documents. If Assange is extradited to the US, he will face up to 175 years in prison.
