Ruslan Yugosh, one of the founders of the portal “Sobytiya Kryma”, stated about attempts of pressure on him as a journalist by the Crimean police.

As he noted, they started pressuring him by calling his 73-year-old mother in for questioning:  “I can’t say that deep inside I wasn’t ready for attempts of “having influence” on me. But I never thought it would be by such an unnatural way. Having found that I don’t live in Crimea at the moment, police officers for some purpose decided to call in for questioning my 73-year-old mother – an elderly and ill person with hypertension. First they broke into the place where she lived and the next day they called her to witness at the far end of the city.  And there were no official document for that,” he wrote on Facebook.
