The journalist, a freelance correspondent of 112 Ukraine Kseniya Babych told the TV channel the details of search and interrogation of the Investigation Committee of the Russian Federation.

"First, the district police officer asked to open the door just by saying: "Open up, police". Later they began to read out the decision of the Basmanny Court about the search in my apartment. Investigators went to the apartment, and immediately began looking through my personal belongings. They searched the entire apartment!.. Of course, they haven’t found anything. They took all my laptops, two, and my phone. The interrogation concerned mainly my work. I worked a lot as a journalist, including some of the time on the Ukrainian TV channel. But it was not very important. Mainly they asked about my acquaintance with Artem Skoropadsky and from where I could know him. We studied together in the same university. Therefore, most likely, they were just interested in the facts of my relations with Skoropadsky", said Babych.
