Evan Gershkovich

The Wall Street Journal reporter was detained in Russia last March on suspicion of espionage.
The Wall Street Journal reporter was charged with espionage in March while on a reporting trip to the Russian city of Yekaterinburg.
Evan Gershkovich, who was arrested in March, and the U.S. government deny the accusations against him.
The hearing took place behind closed doors because authorities say details of the criminal case against U.S. journalist Evan Gershkovich are classified.
Evan Gershkovich, who was detained in Russia on espionage charges, will stay in jail until Nov. 30.
“Being there, it was like having him back,” his father told CNN six months after the journalist was detained.
The U.S. journalist last appeared in court in August when a judge ruled he must stay in jail until the end of November.
The Moscow City Court extended the custody order on Thursday by three months, drawing objections from U.S. government officials and the Wall Street Journal.
Russian state news agency Tass says the arrest of Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich, who was detained on espionage charges, has been extended.
The Kremlin has also suggested that it is open to an exchange involving Evan Gershkovich, who has been detained in Russia since March.
