MOSCOW, October 4. /TASS/. A film crew of the Russian NTV television company has been again detained at Moldova’s Chisinau airport, the broadcaster reported on its website on Sunday.
"Moldova’s authorities have not let NTV correspondent Anton Talpu to the country’s territory. He flew to Chisinau for the editorial task to cover events. The film crew was detained at the airport," the TV channel said.
The journalists will fly to Moscow by a morning flight.
The detention comes as Moldova’s Dignity and Truth (DA) Civil Platform, which urges the resignation of the country’s leadership and the creation of the new pro-European party, called on its supporters to take to the streets in downtown Chisinau on Sunday.
This is the second case when the NTV reporters have been detained in Moldova over the past 24 hours. On Saturday, correspondent Eugene Zuyev, cameraman Sergei Korenkov and sound engineer Vladislav Petrov arrived in Moldova for the editorial task of the Segodnya (Today) news programme. They were detained at the airport and sent back to Moscow saying there was no permission from Moldova’s ministry of press.
