29.09.2015, 15:33

On September 26 in Dnipropetrovsk, the journalist of “Tochka Opory” Serhiy Fedko was pushed out from the session of Dnipropetrovsk city election committee by two riflemen with the chevrons "Sicheslav" under instructions of the committee head. It happened after the journalist started video recording – the commission members asked him to show his credentials, and after he did, he was pushed out, at that his cell phone was damaged and his ID taken from him. Fedko called police and the head of the local oblast Chief Administration of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Ihor Volodymyrovych Repeshko. When the riflemen heard the call they returned the phone and ID to Fedko, but all images on the cell phone were lost.

Earlier, on September 25, Opora informed about doctoring of district borders in Dnipropetrovsk.
