USA condemns arson attack on Ukraine's Inter TV
"Any physical attack on the media outlet is unacceptable."
The United States has condemned the attack on the news office of the Ukrainian pro-opposition TV channel Inter.
"Any physical attack on a media outlet is unacceptable We support thorough investigation into arson at Inter, are following closely," the embassy said on Twitter on 5 September.
On 4 September, around 20 people stormed the office of the NIS company producing news for Inter's Podrobnosti news bulletin, and set it on fire. On 5 September, an indefinite rally began in front of the channel's headquarters in Dmytrivska Street. To avoid provocations, a metal fence was installed around the building.
Earlier this year, Inter's head office was attacked on 2 June and 25 February.
