The Sumy Oblast Police have opened a case over threats to "CUKR" journalists.

This is announced on the website of the Sumy Oblast National Police.

As the police notes, a journalist of a local publication contacted them and reported being threatened for their professional work.

"According to the applicant, a Telegram channel made a post calling for the destruction of their editorial office, featuring their real address. The journalist believes this has to do with their recent report on sexual minorities," the police report.

A case has been opened under Part 1 of Article 345-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine ("Threats or violence against a journalist"). The pre-trial investigation is underway.

As reported by IMI, on July 12, unknown persons on the Telegram channel "Sumy: Holovne" posted threats to destroy the "CUKR" office following an article about the life of the local LGBTQ+ community.
