MOSCOW, July 2. /TASS/. Russia’s Investigative Committee (IC) has launched a criminal case into illegal deportation of Channel One journalist from Ukraine, IC spokesman Vladimir Markin said on Thursday.

Markin said criminal proceedings were opened on charges of "unlawful deprivation of liberty" and "impeding the lawful professional activities" of Russia’s Channel One special correspondent Alexandra Cherepnina.

"Alexandra Cherepnina was on an editorial assignment from Channel One in Kiev. On yesterday morning, the journalist did no contact her colleagues, and several hours later Ukraine’s Security Service said that she was deported from the country," Markin said. "The fact that Alexandra Cherepina was released without any charges once again proves that detention and deportation is connected with the fact that the Ukrainian authorities did not like the truth which the Russian journalist wrote and spoke about the developments in the country," he added.
