In Stakhanov. Luhanska oblast, correspondent of local advertisement and informational weekly edition «Telegazeta» Svitlana Yevseyeva was injured. On May 5, in Stakhanov, session of city council was held. After the session, aggressive people gathered near the city council building. One of them, a woman, pushed the journalist exiting the building, and Svitlana had to go to hospital for medical assistance to have her arm set, as her arm’s soft tissue and bone were damaged. The police is investigating the case, but her colleagues do not think the investigation will have any result. The journalists are sure that Svitlana was attacked because of her work, as in this small town pro-Russian activists know every journalist’s face and can easily target the journalists.
