"Reporters Without Borders" demand that Iryna Danilovych be released
International human rights organization "Reporters Without Borders" condemned the sentence handed by the Russian occupation authorities in Crimea to Ukrainian journalist Iryna Danilovych, and demanded that she be released. This is said in a statement published on the organization's website.
"This draconian sentence is intended to silence a brave journalist and intimidate the last independent media workers in Crimea," said RSF Executive Director Christian Mihr.
According to him, the accusations against Iryna were "absolutely baseless." "We demand that Iryna Danylovych be released," the organization said.
As IMI reported, on December 28, the occupation court of Feodosia, Crimea, sentenced citizen journalist and human rights activist Iryna Danilovych to seven years in prison on charges of illegal storage and manufacture of explosives under Part 1 of Art. 222.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.
The Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the "sentence" handed to Ukrainian citizen journalist Iryna Danilovych by the Russian occupation authorities in the temporarily occupied Crimea.
