Ilya Kyva, a MP from the “Opposition Platform - For Life”, appealed to the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Freedom of Speech regarding the withdrawal of parliamentary accreditation from Bihus.info journalist Danylo Mokryk. The relevant issue will be considered by the committee at a meeting on December 15, which is on the agenda, “Detektor Media” reported.

Danylo Mokryk has received an invitation to this meeting and is going to attend it.

Illya Kyva blamed the journalist with a "gross violation of journalistic ethics and dissemination of openly false information."

It will be recalled that on December 1, the Bihus.info project released a story inwhich Danylo Mokryk showed photos of money and gold allegedly found during a search of Kyva's house. On December 2, the editorial board apologized and acknowledged that some of these photos obtained from a source in law enforcement were related to another case.

On December 2, Ilya Kyva announced that he would sue Bihus.info journalists for erroneous material about the assets confiscated during the search.

On February 4th, on the sidelines of the Verkhovna Rada  Illiya Kyva employed gross language against the journalist for the investigative journalism project Bihus.Info Mokryk Daniel, who raised the question of money laundering through conversion centers.

Bihus.Info journalists sent electronic appeals to the relevant committees of the Verkhovna Rada and law enforcement agencies after the incident with MP Ilya Kiva.

On March 3, the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Rules of Procedure, Ethics and Organization did not find legal grounds to punish Ilya Kiva for his unethical behavior during a conversation with Bihus.info investigative journalist Danylo Mokryk on February 4.

In June the State Bureau of Investigation opened proceedings after the complaint from Danylo Mokryk on obstruction of professional activity by police officer Yuri Ruzanov, who barred the media from attending the thesis defense of Ilya Kiva, an MP from the “Opposition Platform for Life”.
