Law enforcers have notified the security guard of a Kryvyi Rih enterprise of the suspicion for obstructing the work of journalists and attacking a Rada TV cameraman, reports the Prosecutor General's Office.

According to the investigation, the security guard interfered with the work of the Rada TV journalists. He struck the cameraman on the arm and the camera several times to prevent them from entering the building.

The man was detained in accordance with Art. 208 of the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine and chose nightly house arrest as a measure of restraint.

He was notified of suspicion for deliberately beating a journalist due to his legal professional work (Part 2 of Article 345-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).

Rada TV journalist Valeria Kholodova, who was in the crew that was attacked, informed the IMI representative that the story they filmed in Kryvy Rih was being prepared for broadcast. They do not comment on the situation any further.
