MOSCOW, July 1. /TASS/. A journalist working for Russia's Channel One has been accused of fabricating a news report by the Ukrainian Security Service and expelled from Kiev by force, the channel's deputy director told TASS on Wednesday.
Alexandra Cherepnina "called us 20 minutes ago from a Moscow-bound plane where she was taken by force by security officers," Kirill Kleimenov said.
"She said the reason for her expulsion, according to security officers, was the alleged fabrication of a report about a little girl threatening to slaughter Russians," he said adding that the channel ran the story on June 24.
The Russian embassy in Kiev had confirmed that Cherepnina who had been staying in Kiev from mid-June was expelled from the country.
