MOSCOW, September 25 /TASS/. Unidentified people have detained NTV journalist Yekaterina Voronina and her Ukrainian operator near the town of Kalanchak on Ukraine’s border with Crimea, the Moscow-based NTV Company reported on its website on Friday.
Voronina was shooting a footage about Crimea’s blockade by Crimean Tatar activists and members of Ukraine’s Right Sector movement for NTV’s Central Television program. According to NTV, the people who detained her did not have any identification papers.
"The people who detained the NTV journalist forbade her even to approach the border checkpoint. It is noteworthy that Voronina officially crossed the Russian-Ukrainian border at Odessa airport where she had arrived from Moscow by plane," Vadim Takmenev, the director and anchorman of the Central Television program", said.
He added that Voronina had been questioned for three hours. The border guards examined her personal belongings for three hours. They temporarily took away her office phone and deleted all the video files related to the incident from its memory.
"After that Voronina was handed over to employees of Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU) who, in turn, questioned her for another six hours. They let her go early in the morning without bringing any official charges against the journalist," Takmenev stressed.
Voronina is still staying in the territory of Ukraine and is expected to leave for Moscow later in the day on Friday, NTV reported on its website.
