In Odesa, police detained Russian journalist

03.06.2015, 18:54

On May 31 in Odesa, at Kulykovo Pole, police detained Russian journalist Dmitriy Florin, who was near two anti-Maidan representatives that were carting anti-government posters.

When police saw his Russian passport, they decided to detain the man "for identification". According to the journalist, no one physically acted against him, but policemen several times rudely demanded that he switch off his cell phone. After the police clarified that Florin is an oppositional Russian journalist, they became considerably more polite. After some explanations and procedures, the journalist was released.
