Volyn portal "BUH" complains about pressure by deputies of "Samopomich"

17.02.2016, 21:29

The online media outlet from Volyn “BUH” states that local oblast council deputies from the political party "Samopomich" Kostiantyn Zinkevich and Oleksiy Panasiuk threatened the media outlet’s journalists. "BUH" addresses all other party members of "Samopomich" to influence their colleagues regarding this issue. There were multiple episodes where deputies were rude to journalists, humiliated and threatened them. The media outlet published an open letter to "Samopomich" party to that effect. In the letter, they call the party members' behavior "overt pressure against independent media outlet willing to raise important topics".

In case such behavior of the party continues, the media outlet promises to press the matters through court and law enforcement agencies.
