In Lviv, rally participants attacked Channel 24' journalists

23.10.2014, 00:53

On October 17, in Lviv, during the rally at Rynok Square, protesters attacked Marta Kohut, the Channel 24 journalist. Also, they would not let the journalist film and tried to block the camera. However, violence was not used against the journalist herself, but there were many insults and cursing. The explanation for such negative attitude is that the channel belongs to the city mayor, Sadovyi, and the protest was against the city authorities. The police observed the conflict, but never interfered. The journalist considers this case to be obstruction to her professional duties, yet, the filming crew will not sue anyone at this time.
