Peskov on suspension of Feygin's lawyer license: Not Kremlin's decision
Russian Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov has said the Kremlin has nothing to do with a decision to revoke the lawyer license of Mark Feygin, who is representing the interests of Ukrainian journalist Roman Sushchenko in court in Russia.
"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.
