Editor-in-Chief of the Russia Today television channel Margarita Simonyan says the officers of the SBU Security Service of Ukraine have blocked the work of the channel's Kyiv office.

"Kyiv decided to take revenge for the Crimean bridge. They broke into our office, there is no contact with the employees, the website is not updated, telephones are blocked," she wrote on Twitter.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the press secretary of the Ukrainian SBU Security Service's chief, Olena Gitlianska, said the SBU officers were conducting searches in the office of RIA Novosti Ukraine.
