The Ukrainian regimes notorious Secret Service, the SBU has arrested the owner of a Russian language news outlet Strana.ua.
Igor Guzhva was arrested while his offices were raided. Authorities loyal to the Poroshenko regime have stated that the charges related to allegations of blackmail, although many see this is yet another attempt to forcibly shut-down domestically owned Russian language news media after a law was passed banning Russian owned media in the country.
The regime authorities are also cracking down on the large domestically owned and produced Russian language media and entertainment sectors.
Strana.ua was harassed by the SBU throughout 2014 and 2015.
This looks decreasingly like another politically motivated arrest by a regime engaged in crimes against humanity in Donbass.
