Law enforcers confirm they have detained a Russian citizen in Kyiv, reporter of Russian NTV channel Viacheslav Nemyshev for a criminal offense, as a source in law enforcement told Interfax-Ukraine.
“Russian citizen Nemyshev had been detained by police for a criminal offense and was brought to the district department (of police),” the source said.
The source added that accreditation from the so-called “DNR” was found on the reporter, which is why the officers of the Security Service of Ukraine were invited to question Nemyshev.
Previously NTV informed that their reporter was arrested in Kyiv. The media says he was working on an “editorial task” in Kyiv.
Prevously Russian journalist Anna Kurbatova was deported from Ukraine with a three-year ban for spreading anti-Ukrainian propaganda.
Before her, two Spanish journalists were deported from Ukraine for sharing misinformation about the Ukrainian Army actions, including spreading lies about the bombarding of Pervomaisk and flooding of the mines in Donbas.
