In Crimea, police exerts pressure on journalist by summoning his 73-y.o. mother for interrogation
One of the founders of the web portal “Sobytiya Kryma” Ruslan Yuhosh informed about attempts of pressure on him as a journalist by Crimean police by summoning his mother for interrogations. As he is currently not in Crimea, the police first broke into his mother’s apartment and then summoned her for interrogation but presented no official papers for the summoning. She was questioned about his work and about texts that he allegedly wrote. They also asked her whether the journalist has any children. During the conversation, the police officers from the cyber crime department informed the journalist’s mother that if he keeps writing materials that malign Crimea (say, about growing prices for everyday goods) it would turn for the worse for him as the Federal Security Service would come for him.
