Radio Liberty journalist Mykhaylo Tkach has said that the service's filming crew was attacked in Kyiv Zhulyany airport.

"Near the VIP terminal at Kyiv airport, people who constantly keep guard during Viktor Medvedchuk's arrivals and departures, people wearing masks and balaklavas prevented us from carrying out lawful journalist activities. They elbowed us, made us trip over, and pushed the camera from the operator's hands twice," he said on Facebook.

According to the journalist, unknown individuals blocked the filming crew's car with a dashboard camera to prevent it from filming Medvedchuk's arrival from Russia.
