Mykola Semena, Ukrainian reporter who has been cooperating with Radio Liberty, faces five years of imprisonment for his articles, where he puts Crimea as a part of Ukraine’s territory. Leader of Krym.Realii information portal Volodymyr Prytula (see photo) said this on April 19. ‘After the occupation of Crimea, he’s been cooperating with Radio Liberty’, he said, adding that Russian security services confiscated the reporter’s recording equipment and certain records.

Krym.Realii is a regional subdivision of the Ukrainian section of Radio Liberty.  

‘He’s been charged with infringement on Russia’s territorial integrity and he might face five years in prison if they are able to prove that. The pro-Russian government of Crimea says he wrote a number of articles where he named Crimea a Ukrainian peninsula’, Prytula said.

Krym.Realii is a regional subdivision of the Ukrainian section of Radio Liberty.

Most recently, so-called Prosecutor of Crimea Natalya Poklonskaya reported that her office opened a criminal investigation against a reporter working for Krym.Realii for his article where he ‘urged to violate Russia’s territorial integrity’. She never specified the reporter’s name.
