"Skhemy" report that security guards of MP Hranovskyi published online their cameraman’s passport data

The journalists of the journalist investigation program “Skhemy” (Radio Liberty program) are complaining about the conduct of security guards of the Member of Parliament from Petro Poroshenko’s Bloc Oleksander Hranovskyi, who published online passport scans of their cameraman Yaroslav Bondarenko. This was reported by the program's journalist Nataliya Sedletska, “Ukrainska pravda” reports.

The journalist commented that the MP's security guards are acting Security Service of Ukraine officers, who abused their powers to get the scan of the cameraman's passport. She added that they probably did it on command of Hranovskyi himself - the member of Parliament is seeking ways to get rid of any footage showing him in the program of anti-corruption investigations – even if it means publication of personal data and even place of residence of journalists who try to investigate his involvement into corrupt practices. The program requested an interview with the MP, but he refused.
