'We will litigate this decision at the Ukrainian courts and also we prepare the package of the documents in Austria to make the political origin of the actions that are undertaken against me obvious', he said.
The court collected 37,570 dollars of the bail for Ihor Guzhva and gave the permission for his detention.
As we reported Ihor Guzhva addressed Austrian authorities with a plea for political asylum. He left Ukraine when his restrictive measure ended. At the same time, he remains the chief editor of 'Strana.ua'.
In 2017, SBU held the searches at the editor's office of Strana.ua and the flats of two journalists of this edition. Chief editor of Strana.ua Igor Guzhva connected this with the critical articles towards MP of the Verkhovna Rada Dmytro Linko (Radical Party). According to him, the criminal case against the edition was fabricated. Later Guzhva was detained and transferred to the Main Department of the National Police of Kyiv. He was sentenced to the detention in the custody with the possibility of the bailment in the sum of 21.2 thousand of dollars. He emerged from the Lukyanisvska Prison on June 27 and claimed that two more investigations are prepared against him.
