In Mariupol, journalists of Hromadske Donetska Oblast not admitted to conference of Zhebrivskyi due to being late

25.09.2015, 11:33

On September 23 in Mariupol, Donetska oblast, men in camouflage uniforms, who introduced themselves as security guards of the head of Donetska Oblast State Administration Pavlo Zhebrivskyi, did not let the journalists of Hromadske Donetska oblast to his press conference. The security guards said they were instructed not to let through those who arrive after 2 p.m. (and Hromadske journalists were 4 minutes late), also they said their clothes were inappropriate. In his story on the event, Hromadske’s journalist Mykhailo Bahan indicated that other journalists were admitted even after the appointed time, so Hromadske was treated in a discriminative manner.
