Ukraine frees jailed Russian journalist Vyshinsky on bail - TASS

MOSCOW, Aug 28 (Reuters) - Jailed Russian journalist Kirill Vyshinsky was freed from custody in Ukraine on Wednesday after a court ordered his release on bail, the TASS news agency reported.

Vyshinsky, the head of Russia’s state-backed RIA Novosti news agency in Ukraine, was arrested last year and accused of supporting pro-Russian separatists. Vyshinsky faces up to 15 years in jail if convicted of the charges. (Reporting by Maria Kiselyova; writing by Tom Balmforth; Editing by Toby Chopra)
