On March 25, the Zaporizhzhya website inform.zp.ua received a letter to the editorial office with threats and demands to the editorial staff to resign, or otherwise they will be subjected to interrogations with tortures. 

This was announced by the IMI representative in the Zaporizhzhya region.

According to him, the letter came in the afternoon from the user "Abdulhamid Govorov" from the banned mail in Ukraine mail.ua. The letter, in particular, states that the Investigative Committee of Russia has opened a criminal case against all employees of the publication. 

"The case has been opened under the article" Extremism ". All your contact and personal data have been handed over to Russian law enforcement. After the Russian army occupies the settlements where you live and work, you will be interrogated with tortures and imprisonment," the letter said.

It also emphasizes that media workers can appear as witnesses in the case and avoid "real punishment" if they "immediately resign from the media" in which they work. A photo of torture of civilians by people in military uniform and masks was also attached to the letter.

As IMI reported, two editions have already received similar letters - " European Truth " and the Zaporozhye site 061.ua. They are also threatened with interrogation and imprisonment under the articles "extremism" and "terrorism". Employees of Glavkom also received anonymous e-mail threats .
