In Crimea, FSB detained the correspondent of Polish "Gazeta Vyborcha"

19.05.2014, 13:00

On May 17, the Russian FSB agents detained and brought to its local department the correspondent of the Warsaw newspaper «Gazeta Wyborcza» Watslaw Radzyvynovich. He was interrogated for 6 hours. The information originates from the website “Krym Realii”.

  As the journalist himself told, he was having coffee with his Crimean colleagues when FSB agents suddenly approached him on a street and demanded documents without introducing themselves. Although the Polish journalist had all proper ID documents, an accreditation card and a long-term visa for entering Russia, the agents still insisted that he was not the person he says, and that he illegally crossed the border of the Russian Federation. The journalist was not allowed to make a phone call.
