Some 20 activists protested against the prosecution of Ukrainian journalists in Russia on Nov. 2 near the Russian embassy in Kyiv.

The protesters put on the masks of Russian President Vladimir Putin and held banners picturing Roman Sushchenko,  a Ukrainian journalist who was arrested and charged with spying.

Four Ukrainian journalists have been prosecuted by Russian authorities on various charges: Mykola Semena, Sushchenko, Anna Andriyevska, Andriy Klymenko.

Semena and Andriyevska are Crimean journalists who opposed Russian annexation of the peninsula and faced criminal investigations.

The protest was organized by the Information Center on Human Rights and the Center for Civil Liberties and took place on the UN International Day to End Impunity for crimes against journalists.
