The Poltava police opened a case over threats to a journalist from the online publication "Poltavska Khvylia", Anastasia Matsko.

This was reported by the Poltava police press office.

They noted that the journalist contacted the law enforcers herself. According to her, two men verbally threatened her in the session hall of the Poltava City Council in order to prevent her from fulfilling her professional duties.

The police opened the case under the article "obstructing the legal professional work of journalists, influencing a journalist in any form with the aim of preventing them from fulfilling their professional duties, or persecuting a journalist due to their legal professional work."

We remind you that Anastasia Matsko, a journalist at the online publication "Poltava Wave", has said that district council deputy, Serhiy Boyko, and the head of the welfare inspection, Maksym Malko, threatened her during the March 29 City Council session.
