In Simferopol, Donetsk gunmen attacked Russian journalist

07.11.2014, 23:42

On November 6, in Simferopol in the press center of the informational agency Kryminform representatives of the so-called «community defence» attacked Oleksiy Konovalov, journalist of the Russian media outlet TASS, as reported by Krym.Realii.

The incident took place during the press conference about the situation on the enterprise “Krymkhlib”, which is suspected by the occupational authorities of violation of the tax laws and sending money to the mainland Ukraine for the anti-terrorist operation.

The organizers invited to the event the so-called “Donbas militia,” whose representatives were, seemingly, supposed to serve for journalists as a proof that “Krymkhlib” funds the ATO in the East of Ukraine.

These gunmen did not like the behavior of the TASS correspondent and they forced him to leave the hall.
