The reason for detention is my car, which somehow became a 'duplicate'! They want to take me to the police. I refused! Lawyer Lilja Gemedgi is on her way to me now!"

However, he did not specify who exactly detained him.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Russian court is going to sentence Ukrainian journalist Sushchenko to 20 years' imprisonment. He was officially charged with espionage.
