An hour’s walk a day, two cameras filming 24/7 and rare letters to relatives, welcome to the cell of Roman Sushchenko. It’s been six months that the Ukrinform’s correspondent is being illegally detained in Russia.

He was allowed to see his wife for the first time since last September. Angela Sushchenko explained to UATV that she only received 8 letters from him since he got arrested. She also said that authorities recently allowed him to have a fridge where he can stock goods from his supporters. The reporter’s wife strongly insisted that Roman Sushchenko can only be released through an exchange for another prisoner.
