Ukraine’s State Security Service, the SBU, and Prosecutor General’s Office searched the building of RIA Novosti news agency; the agency’s director Kyrylo Vyshynsky was interviewed at the authority’s main office in Kyiv.

The SBU are deciding whether they should detain him. Earlier, the State Security Service found out that Russia used the news agency for the purpose of hybrid information war against Ukraine. RIA Novosti’s workers are now charged with state treason.
