"I cannot comment on this in any way. You know that such decisions are not taken by the Kremlin, and this is not the Kremlin's prerogative," Peskov said, responding to a question from an UNIAN correspondent whether the decision is pressure on the defense of Ukrainian citizen Sushchenko.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Mark Feygin, the Russian lawyer of a Ukrainian journalist, Roman Sushchenko, whom the FSB has accused of "espionage," was stripped of his official license in Russia on April 24.

According to Feygin, the move is a result of "three tweets" he posted earlier.
