10.05.2016, 13:49

In Kramatorsk (Donetska oblast), on May 9, during a solemn rally in the Park of Heroes, unidentified people attacked the journalist of the online media outlet “Skhidnyi Proekt” ("The Eastern Project")  Roman Koshmala, who was recording the conflict around the provocation with the black and orange striped ribbons as one of the participants tore the ribbon off the clothes of one of the women participating in the rally (these ribbons have been heavily used by Russian propaganda). Ukrinform reports this, with reference to “Skhidnyi proekt”. They report that the attacker put the journalist's arm in armlock, and pried off his camera from him. Police settled the conflict right there, and returned the camera to the journalist. As it was established, the attacker was the member of Civil Council of Kramatorsk Oleksiy Andreyev.
