As was reported by the Kyiv media trade union, about an hour ago unidentified persons attacked the editor’s office of the Sumy radio broadcasting station ‘Vsesvit’ with gas. When journalists opened the office doors, gas got into the room and caused minor poisoning of journalists. Some of them felt dizzy or nauseated. Currently, the journalists keep on working. A police detail arrived to the office and is drawing up a report. The office is intent on continuing to cover the election marathon. This incident is taken into account by the regional department of the State Security Service of Ukraine.
Anatoliy Prysiazhniuk, deputy minister of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, informed the Coordination Center that the office of radio station ‘Vsesvit’ will be guarded. The office of Sumy newspaper `Panorama` is also located in this building.
