Prosecutor's office in Russia withdrew summon for interrogation for journalist Tsymbalyuk
The prosecutor's office in Moscow has withdrawn the summon for interrogation of Ukrainian journalist Roman Tsymbalyuk, which had to be held on December 24.
The lawyer of the journalist Mykola Polozov reported about it.
"Today, summon for Roman’s examination was scheduled by the prosecutor assistant. In compliance with the summon published by some media, Roman had to appear before 10:00 a.m. in the office №43 of the Prosecutor's Office of the Central Administrative District of Moscow. It turned out that the prosecutor assistant failed to come to the meeting which had been fixed by her. The office #43 was closed, ” he wrote.
"An answer to what was on suddenly came from the next office. The young man, probably also an assistant prosecutor, asked if, by any chance, I came for Roman Tsymbalyuk's summon, and when he received an affirmative answer, he happily announced that the summon had in fact been withdrawn and asked to leave my contact information. Is it good or not, it's too early to say.
In any case, the ball is now on the side of the Russian authorities, let's see what they will undertake. It is quite possible that the prosecutor's office has decided not to burden itself with unnecessary work just before the New Year's corporate party and the activity is to be on next year, " the lawyer wrote.
As IMI reported, on December 14, Roman Tsymbalyuk said that the proceedings would have been launched against him by the administration of the president of the Russian Federation.
His lawyer Mykola Polozov said that in Russia the journalist was accused of extremism, several administrative cases were to be initiated against him.
Ukrainian journalist Roman Tsymbalyuk was summoned for questioning by the Moscow prosecutor's office on December 24 on charges of inciting animosity and hatred against Russians. According to the text of the Russian prosecutor's office, Tsymbalyuk spoke aggressively against Russia on his YouTube channel.
