Investigators of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) demanded from the TV crew of "Pryamyy TV channel to leave the building of the Museum of the Revolution of Dignity, where searches were conducted today, as the correspondent with “Pryamyy” Olena Chernyakova said during the live broadcast.

“To speak about interference with our work. We have been working here (in the museum. - Ed. ) since 11 a.m. o'clock. And after our first live stand-up, when we told our viewers the search was on, some SBU officers approached us with a request to leave the museum. They said, the investigator did not want us to be inside the museum while the procedural action was on. But I will note that all investigative actions, seizure of documents and employees of SBU work behind closed doors. We worked in another room, ”the journalist said.
