In Crimea, free journalists are being under surveillance of Russian special services. This was reported by the editor of the Radio Liberty project Krym.Realii Olena Yurchenko at UNESCO conference in Helsinki (Finland) dedicated to the International Freedom of Press Day, Krym.Realii inform.

According to her, the representatives of Russian government-controlled mass media often report free journalists to special services. She also reminded that Roskomnadzor blocks access to websites of independent mass media, and "the prosecutor's office of Crimea" helps them do it. Also, criminal cases are being created against free journalists in Crimea for their professional activities, identifying their activities as "separatism". The recent case of Mykola Semena was the third one in the last two years.
