The decision was read out by judge of the Moscow City Court Oleg Muzychenko, an UNIAN correspondent in Russia reported from the courtroom on June 4.

The prosecutors insisted on a 14-year term for Sushchenko, who is charged with "espionage."

As UNIAN reported earlier, Sushchenko was detained at an airport in Moscow, Russia, on September 30, 2016. He was charged with "espionage," as the Russian authorities insist he is an "officer" of Ukraine's intelligence service.

The court started considering the Sushchenko case on March 27, 2018.
