Border guards detained local journalists on Chongar checkpoint
At Chongar checkpoint (administrative border of mainland Ukraine with the Crimea), officers of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine detained the journalist of Henichensk website “Visti Henichenska”. The media outlet’s editor-in-chief informed about this himself.
According to him, the border guards saw the journalists recording near the checkpoint and demanded to delete the footage, although there are no inscriptions banning recording nearby. The journalists were detained, the police and security was called to the site. Only in three hours the journalists were released. They had to complain to the police about their illegal detainment - only after that the border guards released them.
