The editors of two Zaporizhzhia websites, 061.ua and inform.zp.ua, received new threats from russia about incarceration for "spreading fakes."

The employees of the editorial offices told told this to the IMI representative in Zaporizhzhia region.

On June 29, the inform.zp.ua editorial inbox received a short email from user "Elmira Afanasyeva," sent via russian mail service inbox.ru.

061.ua editorial team received two letters from russia. On June 29, user "Alyona Pakhomova" sent them threats about imprisonment for their activities via the internet.ru mail service. The letter had the following content: "Deceiving the public with your agenda, spreading fakes for your propaganda, don’t you get a suspicion that Zelenskyy is a liar? Are you ready, through capitulation, with penal institutions as the place of your emigration, to meet such a shameful end?"

The next day, June 30, the journalists of the editorial office received another email that mentioned Judas, "Vlasovites," and "Motherland betrayers."
