Supporters of Parliamentary candidate blocked entrance to Zhytomyr Oblast State TV and Radio Company and would not let journalists in

In Zhytomyr, on the evening of October 10, supporters of the Parliamentary candidate in district 62 (Zhytomyr) Yuriy Bober blocked the entrance to the building of Zhytomyr Oblast State TV and Radio Company on Teatralna Street and would not let the journalists in. This was reported by Zhytomyr.Info.

When the Company’s staff and police officers told the protesters that by blocking the entrance to a governmental institution they were breaking the law they responded very aggressively. They insisted they would not let anyone in until the live broadcast of their candidate was over. As a result, two journalists submitted a complaint to the police about obstruction to professional activities.
