Russian TV reporters working in Ukraine receive threats - Russian Communications Ministry

Russian TV reporters working in Ukraine receive threats, the Russian Ministry of Communications and Mass Media said on Saturday.

Russian TV reporters, for whom "conditions virtually unbearable for work are created in Ukraine, especially in Kyiv," have reached the agency repeatedly, the Ministry of Communications and Mass Media said.

"Indeed, armed people in plain clothes ban Ukrainian and foreign TV companies and broadcasters to carry out technical transfers of video materials filmed by Russian TV reporters under the threat of violence," the Ministry of Communications and Mass Media said.

Threats are made directly to representatives of Russian mass media outlets as well, the ministry said.
