In connection with these events, the Russian Embassy wrote to the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine protest note.

She said that more details would be made public later. Now we know only about the acts of force taken toward the Russian mass media, the measures that restrict the freedom of our journalists and they can not get in touch.

A spokeswoman for the SBU, Elena Gitlyanskaya confirmed that the SBU conducted searches at the Kiev office of Russian news agency RIA Novosti today. "But overall, these are very serious actions that have to be taken in accordance with the law".

Ukrainian state security agents searched the offices of Russian state news agency RIA Novosti and detained the director of its Kiev office on Tuesday, accusing RIA of being used in an "information war" by Russia against Ukraine.

"We call on Ukrainian authorities to disclose the charges and evidence they have against Vyshynsky or release him without delay", CPJ Europe and Central Asia Program Coordinator Nina Ognianova said.


"We will act aggressively and protect the interests of Russian media to the fullest extent". "The criminalization of alternative news and views has no place in a democratic Ukraine".

Vyshinsky was detained in Kiev on Tuesday.

Dmitry Peskov, the spokesperson of Russia's president called the actions of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) toward the RIA News-Ukraine outrageous and claimed that Russian Federation will reciprocal measures when it gets more detailed information as RIA News reported. Nearly immediately, the agency's headquarters, its press center and homes of some of the employees were searched.

Ukrainian safety company SBU stated in a press release that it's investigating "a community of media retailers" managed by the Russian authorities that are "used as instruments in a hybrid warfare towards Ukraine". According to the SBU the offices of RIA Novosti and RT share the same premises in the centre of Kiev. Later, however, he said that the agency managed to establish contact with Borodin.

Later she reported that Vyshynsky and his advocate are questioned by the SBU.
