A Ukrainian court ruled on August 28 to release Russian journalist Kirill Vyshinsky from preliminary detention, pending trial on charges of high treason. The head of Russia's state-run RIA Novosti's office in Ukraine, Vyshinsky was arrested in May 2018 amid accusations that the news agency was involved in a "hybrid information war" waged by Russia against Ukraine. As he left the court in Kyiv, Vyshinsky again voiced suspicions that he was being prepared for a prisoner exchange, saying such a deal would not make sense because he is innocent.
