"Dnipro Operatyvny" receives an email about a mine in their office
On May 21, the editors of the online publication "Dnipro Operatyvny" received a notification about a mine in their office. Olesya Antoshkina, the editor-in-chief, reported this to an IMI representative.
The email arrived to the editorial inbox. An unknown person demanded that the editors transfer 170 bitcoins to their account.
"A journalist was on duty at our office on Sunday. And she told me that the police came, inspected the premises, asked questions," said Olesya Antoshkina.
She also added that their editorial office occupies one of the floors of a six-story building which hosts many other organizations as well. She finds it surprising that the email about the alleged mine only arrived to their office.
The Dnipro City Council also reported on the alleged mining of over 400 objects. According to them, four letters about mines had arrived at the SBU inbox. The "mined" facilities listed in them included schools, courts, and administrative buildings.
