According to the publication, the video shows how law enforcers refuse to draw up a detention report, and forcefully derive journalist from the hotel room, where crew stopped.

"I'm not obliged to draw up a report on site. I shall deliver you to the central Police Department for further proceedings "- one of the policemen said.

Syzov arrived to Kyiv at the evening, on Feb.1 Kyiv.
