In Kyiv, guards at business center threatened TSN journalists

04.06.2014, 18:28

In Kyiv, the guards of a business center located near Arsenalna subway station threatened the TSN filming crew (1+1 TV channel) with firearms and physical violence. The filming crew, the journalist Ksenia Marchenko and operator Serhiy Kyseliov were filming the river banks for a material about the weather when they were approached by several armed athletic-looking men. One of them threatened the crew and told them it was forbidden to film there but gave no reason or explanation why. The only reason the man came up with was that it was a wrong time and a wrong place to film near the business center. The police on site failed to respond.

The journalists filed a complaint with the police about obstruction.
