MOSCOW - Several Russian opposition leaders whose apartments were being searched on June 11 have been summoned to meet investigators on June 12, the same day they planned to attend an anti-government protest, the Interfax news agency reported. Interfax cited a spokesman for the Investigative Committee, Russia's main criminal investigation agency, as saying the people whose homes were searched were "summoned to the Investigative Committee on June 12".
The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/. The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow. Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
