US Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan visited jailed US national Paul Whelan, who is accused of espionage, at Moscow’s Lefortovo prison on Thursday.
The ambassador lashed out at the fact that Whelan hasn’t been able to contact his family since his arrest in December 2018.
Sullivan also said that Whelan’s health “has clearly deteriorated since he was arrested over 13 months ago, and most... Еще significantly, he hasn’t received medical treatment for those medical problems which he has and are extremely uncomfortable and potentially a serious threat to his health.”
Whelan was detained in the Russian capital on December 28, 2018. If found guilty of espionage, he faces up to 20 years in prison.
