 Ukrainian journalist Tsymbaliuk detained by Moscow police

Roman Tsymbaliuk, a Ukrainian journalist accredited by Russia's Foreign Ministry, has been detained by the Moscow police for attempting to interview a Moscow State University student who waved a Ukrainian flag from his dorm window on the anniversary of Crimea's occupation.

Censor.NET reports referring to Tsymbaliuk's Facebook page.

"We've found Zakhar, the hero who waved a Ukrainian flag over Moscow State University on the third anniversary of Crimea's annexation. A wonderful interview ended with the arrival of the police. They seized my documents and we are waiting for the police chief of Moscow State University to come. Surprisingly, this kind of police exists," the journalist said.

He wrote later: "We have been detained and are being taken to a local police station to check the "legality" of the shooting. This is my first ever trip in a police car:) The accreditation of the Russian Foreign Ministry did not help."
