In "Blockade of Crimea" HQ, they deny that activists obstruct journalists
The vice-head of the central headquarters of «Blockade of Crimea» action, Izet Hdanov, said that activists of the movement do not impede the journalists’ work. He made this statement on Media Sapiens. The issue was raised when the filming crew of "Khersonskiye Vesti” faced counteraction of the action participants, including "Right Sector", and the head of the movement – the director general of the ATR TV channel, Lenur Isliamov. The filming crew filed a complaint to the police about the crime described in Article 171 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (impediment to legal professional activities of journalist). Olena Khalimon from the information agency "Holos Krymu" also complained about the activists’ rude impediment to her work. Hdanov said that he does not know the names of these journalists; he said that journalists work at the action site without problems, and assumed that journalists were "provoking" the action participants.
