Russia: Supporters rally for RIA journalist Vyshinsky detained in Ukraine

A rally in support of RIA Novosti Ukraine Editor-in-Chief Kirill Vyshinsky, who has been under arrest for 150 days on charges of treason, was held in Moscow on Friday. The rally was held in the courtyard of the Rossiya Segodnya building, formerly Ria Novosti. The director of the news agency, Dmitry Kiselev, said that “this is a horrible situation. In the centre of Europe, they take a journalist... Еще, put him in jail and torture him.” “The conditions of detention of Kirill are comparable to real torture,” Kiselev added. Reportedly, about 100 of Vyshinsky's colleagues took part in the event, which featured a large portrait of Vyshinsky with the hashtag #TruthNotTreason. The RIA journalist is being held on suspicion of treason, which carries a prison sentence of up to 15 years. Last month, Kherson City Court ruled that he should remain in custody until November 4.
