22.01.2015, 16:40

The journalist of the web portal  www.0372.ua Halyna Yemets received private messages on her Vkontakte account with threats to retaliate for materials she published on the website. On January 17, she wrote an article about a conflict related to a local school principal, and after the publication, someone, presumably, the principal's  relative, threatened to get back at her. "You lie against my family, and for me, revenge for my family is important" - he wrote her in a private message. The journalist now prepares a complaint to the police regarding these threats.
