In Zhytomyr, activist was preventing Zhytomyr.info camera operator from filming protest against Russian bank

23.06.2014, 22:07

On June 20, in Zhytomyr a local activist Andriy Fedirko was interfering with the work of the camera operator of the online media outlet Zhytomyr.info Serhiy Hryhorchuk and threatening him.

The incident took place during the protest in front of one of Russian banks. Several dozens of people headed by Andriy Fedirko, who had a loudspeaker on him, were throwing eggs and brilliant green at the bank on Velyka Berdychivska Street.

Fedirko was trying to stop the Zhytomyr.info journalists, as he believed they were distorting the information. As soon as they came to the site, he began to harass the operator and stood in front of the camera to block the lens, but other protesters stopped him.

The Zhytomyr.info journalist filed a complaint with the police.
