In Illichevskyi port in Odeska oblast, journalists were attacked

31.07.2015, 08:52

On July 30, at 9.30 in the morning, the building of Administration of Illichevskyi sea trade port was infiltrated by a group of people. The request of employees of the state enterprise "Illicheevskyi Sea Trade Port" and journalists of the port's website and a web media outlet from Odesa "Dumskaya" to these people - to show some ID - was denied. The people were not introducing themselves, just saying they were "citizens of Ukraine". They were not allowing video recording, tried to take the journalists' camera, and were not allowing them into offices. Based on the conversations of the people it followed that they probably were officers of the tax police from Kyiv and Odesa, and prosecutor's office of Kyiv. The employees of the port were blocked inside the buildings, in stuffy corridors, having no access to offices, and were not allowed out of the buildings.
