Police to investigate the attack on journalist in Kherson as obstruction

09.07.2024, 17:03

Kherson police has opened an investigation into the attack on the MOST journalist Olena Hnitetska in Kherson.

The press officer of the Kherson Oblast National Police HQ Andriy Kovany reported this to the Institute of Mass Information representative in Kherson oblast.

"It was entered into the Unified Register of Pretrial Investigations yesterday (July 8. – Ed.) under Article 171 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (obstructing the legal professional work of journalists. – Ed.). An investigation is underway," he said.

MOST journalist Olena Hnitetska was attacked and threatened by an unknown man while filming in Kherson earlier on July 8.

At the time of the attack, she was wearing a bulletproof vest and a helmet with PRESS badges, so the attacker clearly saw that he was obstructing a journalist's work.

Olena Hnitetska filed a statement with the police.
