The bank accounts of Vesti Mass Media (VMM), which
publishes the free Russian-language daily Vesti, have been blocked, as well as
those of chief editor Igor Guzhva, said Yaryna Klyuchkovska, press secretary of
the Revenues and Duties Ministry.

The media outlet dismissed the allegation, and called
the tax police raid on its office an act of “political pressure.”

Vesti has a reputation for biased reporting of the
Kremlin-backed separatist movement in Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts, according to
Telekritika media criticism hub head Nataliya Ligachova.
