Meduza is collecting letters for Evan Gershkovich The Russian authorities, who claim The Wall Street Journal reporter was ‘engaged in espionage,’ are holding him in a Moscow detention center
Journalist Evan Gershkovich was arrested on March 30 on orders from Russia’s Federal Security Service, which claims that he was involved in “espionage” — an offense punishable by up to 20 years in prison. Without a shred of evidence, a chorus of Russian state officials has repeated these allegations against Evan, who’s now being held at Moscow’s notorious Lefortovo detention center. Meduza is proud to join media outlets around the world in demanding Evan Gershkovich’s immediate release.
Meduza is also collecting letters for Evan Gershkovich, who is entitled to receive correspondence while in pretrial detention. Show your support and remind him that he’s not alone by writing him a note, using the form below. We will do everything we can to deliver your words to our jailed colleague. Feel free to write in English, and we will translate your letter, so Russia’s prison censors have one fewer excuse to refuse to pass it on — and one day we will deliver the original texts to Evan. (You’re also welcome to write in Russian yourself.) Meduza will publish select letters to Gershkovich on our website.
