Statement on Evan Gershkovich detention reaching one year

This week marks a year since Russia detained journalist Evan Gershkovich under ridiculous espionage pretenses.


Today, a Russian court extended his detention for another three months.


These absurd allegations should be dropped and Evan should be returned to his family and community immediately.
