Journalist who conducts investigation was falsely accused of separatism by son of rector whom he investigates

01.02.2016, 21:03

After Volodymyr Torbich, journalist of the online media outlet "Chetverta Vlada" and Hromadske TV investigation project "Slidstvo Info," published some of his investigations covering the activities of the rector of Rivne State Humanitarian University Ruslan Postolovskyi, an anonymous individual sent e-mails to local media outlets, where the journalist was accused of separatism and of being involved with some religious organizations that were facilitating the occupation of Crimea. The editorial office of "Chetverta Vlada" investigated the Word file used to disseminate the defamatory information and discovered the e-mail address of the author - pastiks@gmail.com. It appears that the accuser is the son of the scandalous rector, who was the subject of the journalist's investigations, Serhiy Postolovskyi.
