Prime Minister’s bodyguard impeded journalist to work at children fest
On December 28, 2012, in Kyiv, during a meeting of Prime Minister Mykola Azarov with children of Velykopolovetska boarding school at the New Year's celebration at Ukraine Palace, a PM’s bodyguard swore at LB.ua photographer Maxim Levin and impeded him to work, LB.ua reports.
According to LB.ua, when Azarov spoke to the children at the Christmas tree, the photographer was approached by an employee of the State Guard Service of Ukraine. He pushed aside the journalist with the words: "finish your work and moving away." Levin said he was busy with taking photos, the guard replied with swearwords. Kids were standing around and heard the conversation.
After the meeting, the photographer and a correspondent of LB.ua caught the bodyguard on the street and asked him to show his identification. He refused and tried to quickly walk away from the journalists, but he finally he had to show his ID - his name is Roman Lysok.
