The journalist of Chernivtsi–based newspaper “Chas” Natalia Brianska was preparing a material about the operation of the TB Disability Determination Service, and its head Iryna Voytenko threatened Brianska with police and accused of disrupting the Service’ operation. According to Brianska, she was at the Service’ office in her official capacity on request from citizens. Voytenko lost her temper and began to demand that the journalist stopped filming and left the premises. Brianska showed the doctor her journalist ID but the doctor shouted to her subordinates to call the police to remove the journalist.
