Russian “Channel One” claims their journalist was abducted in Kyiv

30.08.2017, 17:30
Anna Kurbatova, photo – “Ukrainska Pravda” The Russian “Channel One” claimed that on August 30, the channel’s journalist Anna Kurbatova was abducted in downtown Kyiv. Espreso.TV reported this with reference to Channel One’s  press service. “Anna Kurbatova was snatched by unidentified persons, who took her to a car and drove away. According to our information, Anna Kurbatova was detained by SBU officers”, the news goes. It was specified that it is unknown where the Russian journalist was taken. Currently there is no information from the law enforcement agencies confirming this. As “Ukrainska Pravda” reports, the day before it became known that Russian journalist Anna Kurbatova was included into the database of the “Myrotvorets” website. The website’s authors accused the journalist of manipulating the information and preparing a biased news story about the parade of Ukraine’s Independence Day. The Security Service of Ukraine told “Ukrainska Pravda” only that everything is going on in compliance with the Ukrainian legislation. No details have been disclosed so far. For the context, on August 15, the Security Service of Ukraine deported the Russian journalist of the TV channel “Rossia 1” Tamara Nerserian, who filmed a biased story about the all-Ukrainian festival “Banderstadt”. In her news story, Nerserian presented ‘Banderstadt’ as being organized by the neo-Nazi organizations and “Western overseers”, and the festival itself featuring presentations of books by ne-Nazis and banning the Russian language.
