"The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine has expressed its resolute protest over the refusal of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation to rule in favour of an appeal filed by Valentyn Vyhovsky's defense team contesting the verdict of the Moscow Regional Court, which sentenced the Ukrainian to 11 years in a high-security prison," the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said. Ukraine's Foreign Ministry demands that the Russian side repeal "the guilty verdict," it said. The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry considers the trial over Vyhovsky to be "biased," it said. The Russian Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the verdict handed down to Ukrainian citizen Valentyn Vyhovsky, who was convicted of espionage and sentenced to 11 years in a high-security prison.
