On April 26, in Sevastopol (the Crimea), four journalists of local mas media were attacked at the Dolphinarium - unknown people sprayed fire extinguisher into their faces, threw stones, and poured the journalists with water.

In particular, the victims were Vladyslav Osipob, a journalist with Chornomorska broadcasting company, cameraman Igor Demchenko and journalist Rita Pronina of  "The Independent Television of Sevastopol", and journalist Oleh Scherbakov, head of informational and analytical programs of the Sevastopol State Broadcasting Company.

The journalists wrote applications about obstructing their work and causing them a bodily harm. The journalists note that they were forced to suspend their work on the site because the video-equipment was flooded with water. According to their information, they had to constantly hide from rocks and boulders that were thrown into them.

According to Osipov, he was forced to seek medical help at the local hospital, where doctors have documented that he had burns caused by the fire extinguisher.

Employees of the Leninsky district police station of Sevastopol began investigating the application of the four journalists about obstructing their work and causing them bodily harm.
