The journalist of the national newspaper “Ukraina moloda”, member of the National Association of Journalists of Ukraine, Andriy Bahniuk, says he received threats from an unidentified man who called himself the son of the woman mentioned in his article "Passions around temples". The journalist reported this to IMI.

According to the journalist, he started receiving threats after publication of his article in the newspapers "Ukraina moloda" and "Dialog" (Kreminets, Ternopilska oblast). The article pertains to transfer of parishes from Moscow to Kyiv patriarchy. The woman, whom he mentions, Nina Raiter, is described as a "pro-Russian activist", and claims that in the village she and some other pro-Russian people are called "traitors". On July 10 in the morning, a man who called himself Nina's son, who recently returned from the war zone where he served, called him, and after a short conversation threatened to kill him.
