They wanted to receive information about applications from citizens

Three journalists were not allowed into the city court’s building in Alchevsk city.

According to Coordination Center of Journalists During Election, chairman of Alchevsk independent media trade union Yuri Gukov disclosed this.

According to his information, journalists Bogdan Bondarenko (“Mirror weekly” weekly newspaper), Dmytro Karnauhov (“Vzglyad” newspaper) and Y. Gukov himself came to Alchevsk city court in order to receive information concerning applications from citizens.  But chairman of the court Valeriy Dolmatov turned them out of the court’s building in rude form, and this is a serious violation of journalist’s rights.
