The head of the RIA Novosti Ukraine news portal, Kirill Vyshinsky, was detained on charges of treason on Tuesday. That same day, the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) broke into the office of RIA Novosti Ukraine in Kiev and the homes of two journalists. Earlier on Wednesday, Vyshinsky’s lawyer said that the authorities began the prison transfer of a journalist from Kiev to Kherson, where they would determine a measure of restraint for him.
