Moscow Court Rules US Journalist Evan Gershkovich Must Stay in Jail Until Late August

From an AP story headlined “Moscow court rules US journalist Evan Gershkovich must stay in jail until late August”:

A Moscow court on Thursday ruled that Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich must remain in jail on espionage charges until at least late August, rejecting the American journalist’s appeal to be released.

The 31-year-old U.S. citizen was arrested in late March while on a reporting trip. A Moscow court ruled last month to keep him in custody until Aug. 30, but his lawyers had challenged the decision.
