Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine from the party of “European solidarity”, former President of the country Petro Poroshenko Alexey Goncharenko made scandal from-for Russian journalists and refused to communicate with the representative of the Ukrainian media. The conflict occurred before the session of the parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), reports RIA Novosti.
According to the Agency, arriving in the building of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, member of the Ukrainian delegation Goncharenko had refused to answer questions of journalists from Russia, calling them propagandists. To communicate with a journalist from the Ukraine he also did not want due to the fact that she was standing next to the representatives of the Russian media.
Similar cases of the negative attitude to Russian journalists by the Ukrainian members of the PACE reported in 2019. So, in January, the journalist of TV channel “Russia 1” Olga Skobeeva said that the representative of the delegation of Ukraine in PACE Borislav Birch insulted and pushed her, saying that he “believes Skobeevo journalist”.
In August 2019, it was reported that the security did not allow the journalist to the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky in Turkey. The head of state was heading to his car when one of the Turkish guards, attached to the Ukrainian leader, blocked Skobeevo and would not let her go to the car.
