At the checkpoint of the National Police near Mariupol, lawmaker of the Berdyansk City Council, Viktor Tsukanov, was detained. He was with his wife and child. Tsukanov said this on his page on Facebook.
According to him, the police accused him of terrorism.
“Firstly we went to the skating rink in Mariupol, and after that we gave testimony first to the Security Service of Ukraine and then to the Mangush police station that I was not a terrorist. From 17-00 to 20-40 hours we spent an unforgettable time at our Ukrainian block post, proving that in 2014 I carried humanitarian aid for the Ukrainian army, and not to the Donbas militants” - he wrote.
Tsukanov said that the police did not want to accept a statement about abuse of office by law enforcement officers.
As we reported, Russia has put Crimean activist Oleh Prykhodko to the list of people involved in extremist activities or terrorism.
