The editorial email inbox of Zaporizhzhia website 061.ua received another letter from russia containing threats of interrogations and imprisonment.

The editorial staff reported this to IMI representative in Zaporizhzhia region.

According to the journalists, the editorial team has received such emails before.

On June 10, the editors received an email from user "Anatoly Antonov," sent through the Internet.ru mail service. The letter, in particular, states: "The Investigative Committee of russia has opened a criminal case against all employees of your publication. The case was instituted under the 'Extremism' article of the Criminal Code. All your contacts and personal details have been submitted to russian authorities. After the russian army occupies the settlements where you live and work, you will face third degree interrogations and imprisonment. You can testify in the case and avoid this punishment if you resign from the media you work for right now."

As IMI reported, an identical letter has been received by "Volyn Online" on June 10.

We remind that the authorities have opened criminal proceedings on the fact of email threats received by Zaporizhzhia editorial offices from russia. The criminal proceedings have been instituted under Part 1 of Article 438 of the Criminal Code “Violation of the laws or customs of war.” The sanction of the article provides for imprisonment for a term of eight to twelve years.
