Journalist Dmytro Gordon decided to interview lawmaker of Russia’s State Duma, ex-prosecutor of occupied Crimea Natalia Poklonskaya and former so-called defense minister of Donetsk People's Republic Igor Girkin on his own initiative. The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) considers them as possible extra evidence of the Russian aggression against Ukraine as the SBU reported on Facebook.
“All information announced in these interviews is analyzed in detail by the SBU employees concerning its use as extra evidence of seizure of the territory of Ukraine by Russia and factual beginning of the war in the east of our state,” the message said.
Earlier, Gordon published the statement that he held the interviews under the auspices of the Ukrainian special services and flash disks with materials were sent to the Hague as evidence in the case of the annexation of Crimea and military aggression in Donbas.
These interviews raised a sharp reaction of the society and led to the protests near the office of Gordon’s agency.
As we reported, 20 cities of Ukraine held the campaign of employees of the art industry #stopculturalquarantine. The hundreds of spotlights hit the sky over large cities and a lot of photos were published on social networks. Thus, they want to attract the attention of the authorities and society to the art industry. According to the organizers of the campaign, the lockdown left without work over 250,000 people from the entertainment sphere: mostly entertainers, musicians, and actors.
