On Friday, Sept. 29, we will mark six months since WSJ reporter Evan Gershkovich was wrongfully detained by Russia and falsely accused of espionage. Dow Jones, The Wall Street Journal and the U.S. government vehemently deny the allegation, and we stand with Evan and his loved ones in seeking his immediate release.
It is vital to keep Evan’s story front and center, particularly as we reflect on this difficult milestone. We invite you to join the Journal and the broader Dow Jones community in helping us amplify Evan and activate your social networks for a social storm on Friday, Sept. 29, at 10:30 a.m. ET.

It has been 6 months since Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich was wrongfully detained by Russia during a reporting trip and falsely accused of espionage. The Wall Street Journal and the U.S. government vehemently deny the allegation and continue to call for his immediate release.
Evan’s arrest is a brazen violation of press freedom and not only poses far-reaching consequences for journalism, but for governments and democracies everywhere. A free press is integral to a free society. We all have a stake in this.
Please share Evan’s reporting and the latest updates on his situation by visiting WSJ.com/Evan to help keep his story front and center. Journalism is not a crime, and we will not rest until Evan is released. #IStandWithEvan
