24.11.2015, 19:46

On November 22, representatives of the civil blockade of Crimea would not let journalists of the information agency “Holos Krymu” conduct video and photo recording at the exit and entry checkpoint "Chaplynka" (Khersonska oblast), were the power transfer line support was blown up on the line providing electricity to the occupied Crimea.” Olena Khalimon, the journalist, told about this on the website "Holos Krymu." "We were closely encircled by six men wearing camouflage, reeking of alcohol. They called themselves representatives of "Automaidan Kyiv", but they did not show any IDs. They physically impeded us from taking any photos or video recording, were pushing the camera tripod and blocking the view. At that, they used dirty language and abused us", the journalist told. A policeman from Kherson was present at the site but he did not help the journalists in any way, acting as a powerless by-stander.
