Evan Gershkovich

The following statement from Wall Street Journal publisher Almar Latour and editor in chief Emma Tucker on reporter Evan Gershkovich was issued following Tuesday’s hearing:


As many of you will have read, our colleague Evan Gershkovich appeared at a hearing today in Moscow City Court where his pretrial detention was upheld. While we expected this development, it is nonetheless disappointing.

Evan is wrongfully detained and the charges of espionage against him are false. We demand his immediate release and are doing everything in our power to secure it.

His lawyers and the U.S. Ambassador to Russia, who was granted consular access yesterday, were present in the courtroom today. Details and images of Evan’s court appearance can be found in the Journal’s coverage here.

The next hearing is scheduled for late May.

Thank you for your ongoing support for Evan and his family.
