He told it to activist Iryna Vladymyrova, and she posted it on her page in Facebook, as to Ukrinform. “Thank you to postal card, envelops and letter. Though, a quarter of text in Ukrainian (and probably, in German) was found out to be thouroughly crosshatched (very methodically and consequently), it is stamped and commented “correspondence is authorized only in Russian”, Sushchenko told. He added another letter for his anniversary “all the text written by hand was found out to be cut off”. Ukriform reminded the address that letters to Sushchenko have to be sent: Сущенко Роману Владимировичу ФКУ ИК-11 УФСИН России по Кировской обл., деревня Утробино, Кировская область, Россия 613043 Ukrinform's Paris-based correspondent Roman Sushchenko was illegally detained on September 30, 2016 in Moscow, where he arrived on a private trip. On October 7, 2016, he was charged with "espionage." Russia's FSB claimed that Sushchenko is a member of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry. The latter denied this allegation. On June 4, 2018, the Moscow City Court sentenced Sushchenko to 12 years in a high-security penal colony. The Supreme Court of Russia upheld the verdict on September 12. On October 8, 2018, it was reported that Sushchenko had been transferred to a penal colony. On November 7, the Russian Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) informed Ukraine's Embassy in Moscow that Sushchenko had been transferred to Penal Colony No. 11 of the FSIN directorate for the Kirov region (the town of Kirovo-Chepetsk, the village of Utrobino).
