  • Кремль отреагировал на обыски СБУ в офисе РИА

Ukrainian safety company SBU stated in a press release that it's investigating "a community of media retailers" managed by the Russian authorities that are "used as instruments in a hybrid warfare towards Ukraine". "And now investigative actions are being carried out", spokeswoman of the SBU Olena Hitlianska told Interfax-Ukraine on Tuesday morning.

Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said that the SBU's actions "contradict all norms and rules" and "deserve the harshest condemnation from worldwide organizations". "We will be looking forward to [their] harsh and uncompromising response", he stressed.

"The reciprocal measures will definitely be assumed but to specify them we need to get more detailed information".

Officers of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) together with the Prosecutor's Office of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea on Tuesday raided the Kyiv office of the agency RIA Novosti Ukraine.

Kyiv has banned more than a dozen Russian television channels since 2014, accusing them of spreading propaganda.

Kiev has a long record of regularly expelling Russian journalists from the country or refusing access to government buildings and events.
