Lutsenko also wrote that the investigation has video and audio evidence.

Recall, there was a photo and video from the police search of the editorial board of “Country.ua”.

The persons, who presented themselves as employees of the National Police of Ukraine, stormed the editorial office, which is included in the top 10 Internet media, of the publication “Country.ua”.

Note that, according to Igor Guzhva, the criminal case against the publication is falsified and arose after a critical publication about the People’s Deputy from the faction of the Radical Party, Dmitry Linko.
