STB claims Russia invents new reasons to make border crossing impossible for their journalists

09.12.2015, 00:25

The editor-in-chief of the STB news program “Vikna-STB”, Volodymyr Pavliuk, announced that the channel will not send to Russia its employees with official registration in Crimea, if staying there puts them in danger. He also said that Russia keeps inventing new reasons to make crossing of the Ukrainian-Russian border for the filming crew of the Ukrainian TV channel STB impossible, MediaSapiens reports. Both on the way to Russia and on the way back, the Russian authorities do everything they can to make crossing of the Ukrainian-Russian border as cumbersome and hard as possible, Pavliuk said. At that, all the documents of the journalists are properly prepared, yet every time the border guards bring new surprises.
