Operatives of the FSB, Russian federal security service searched the house of Ukrainian civil activist Olga Pavlenko in the annexed Crimea. Crimean Human Rights Protection Group reported this on Facebook on Wednesday morning.
The search began at about 6.40 a.m. August 29.
Previously, in April 2018, prosecutor's office in Simferopol summoned Pavlenko and her colleague Olena Popova, while looking into the activity of the pro-Ukrainian NGO - specifically, printing of the local newspaper called 'Crimean Blackthorn'. The summoned activists used their right not to testify against themselves.
According to Krym.Realii, Pavlenko's friends assume that the search could take place after someone fed the information to the pro-Russian web portal Russkaya Vesna (Russian Spring, - 112 International).
