Suspected US spy Paul Whelan appealed to US President Donald Trump to help him get out of Russian custody, as his detention was ruled lawful by the Moscow City Court on Thursday.
During the court meeting, Whelan read aloud a statement addressed Trump: “Mr. President, we cannot keep America great unless we aggressively protect and defend American citizens wherever they are in the world.”
The court ruled that Lefortovo District Court’s ruling in May to keep Whelan in detention until the end of the summer was legal.
He was detained in Moscow on December 28. If found guilty of espionage, the former US Marine Corps veteran faces up to 20 years in prison.
