Lawyer For Journalist Semena Vows To Appeal To European High Court


A court in Russia-occupied Crimea gave RFE/RL contributor Mykola Semena a 2 1/2 year suspended sentence on a charge of separatism for allegedly calling for the violation of Russia's territory integrity in one of his articles. Following the verdict in Simferopol on September 22, Semena's lawyer, Emil Kurbedinov, promised to appeal to the European Court of Human Rights. (RFE/RL's Ukrainian Service)
