Minister of Energy swears at "Radio Liberty" journalists

25.01.2016, 18:06

Minister of Energy and Coal Industry of Ukraine Volodymyr Demchyshyn was rudely swearing at the journalists from investigation program “Schemes: corruption in details” (joint project of "Radio Liberty" and TV channel "UA:First"), and asked the security guards nearby who allowed the reporters to the territory near the entrance to the Presidential Administration. This reported by the program's journalists in the issue of their program called "The President's appointments", Media Sapiens informs. The filming crew spent near the building six days, and in most days they met the Minister of Energy Demchyshyn there. The Minister was behaving like he was at home, was rude towards journalists, was answering their questions with insults and tried to get rid of them, including physical pushing. He also lured the journalists in promising to answer their questions, and confronted the security, scolding them for allowing journalists to stay near the Administration building. The Minister was very surprised to hear that the access to the public building is free for the general public.

 

The journalists were taking such a desperate rally near the Presidential Administration because the office refused to give them the list of visitors who come to visit Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, calling this list "confidential information".
