15.06.2016, 16:52

On June 14, in the occupied Crimea, the Russian occupation authorities detained the editor-in-chief of the newspaper “Argumenty nedeli-Krym”, Oleksiy Salov. This was reported at the Facebook page of the journalist of the newspaper “Komsomolskaya Pravda”, Anastasiya Medintseva, “Detector media” reports.

Based on her report, Oleksiy Salov was detained in a cafe of Simferopol city. Based on Medintseva's story, Salov became wanted in Russia in 2009, allegedly for blackmailing a representative of the Russian Federal Assembly Grigoriy Anikeyev.

Based on information published by Kasparov.ru, however, the accusation was forged: police planted some money as evidence of blackmail. Salov himself claimed that he was prosecuted "because someone did not want to hear criticism against him".
