Amid the court hearing, Russian Permanent Representative to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Alexander Lukashevich demanded the immediate release of RIA Novosti Ukraine portal head Kirill Vyshinsky.
"Once again, in Ukraine pressure is being exerted on journalists who try to work honestly… Judging by the accusations of the SBU, [Vyshinsky has been detained] over fulfilling his journalistic duties, over truth about the events in the country. Such actions were condemned by OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media Harlem Desir. We demand the immediate release of Kirill Vyshinsky," Lukashevich said at an OSCE meeting.
Speaking at the court hearing earlier this day, Vyshinsky said that all actions of the Ukrainian authorities in his respect had been "planned in advance."
