In the occupied Crimea, citizen journalist Iryna Danilovych is being charged with ​​alleged illegal manufacturing, transporting or storing explosives. She faces from six to eight years in prison and a fine of up to 100 thousand rubles (45 thousand UAH).

"russian occupiers have pressed charges against Crimean nurse and citizen journalist Iryna Danilovich: she is being accused of allegedl illegal manufacturing, transportation or storage of explosives – Article 222.1 p. 1 of the Criminal Code. According to these charges, Iryna faces from six to eight years in prison and a fine up to 100,000 rubles (UAH 45,000).
