The Institute of Mass Information reports threats to Ukrainian activist Irina Zemlyanaya, who doused the Russian Federation Ambassador to Poland Sergey Andreev with artificial blood during a rally on May 9 in Warsaw.
According to Ukrinform, the Executive Director of the Institute of Mass Information (IMI) Oksana Romaniuk said this in Facebook.
“Rusnya took down the IMI website with a massive DDoS attack. So massive that they managed to take down our site for the first time since the beginning of the war,” the report says.
IMI assures that they will soon resume their work and continue to document and expose Russia’s crimes against the media.
“I attribute this attack to the protest action that took place yesterday in Warsaw, in which our media expert Irina Zemlyanaya took part. Since yesterday, Irina herself has received hundreds of death threats from Rashists, and we are very worried about her safety,” noted Romanyuk.
As reported, on May 9, Ukrainian activists in Warsaw prevented the Russian ambassador to Poland, Sergei Andreev, from laying a wreath at the cemetery of Soviet soldiers: he was doused with artificial blood.
As writes IMI, right during an interview on the radio, one of the organizers of the action, Irina Zemlyanaya, was approached by Polish law enforcement officers. They took her passport and contact details. Also, data was taken from other participants in the action.
In turn, Polish officials and politicians call the actions of Russian Ambassador to Poland Sergei Andreev, who on Monday tried to lay a wreath at the monument to Soviet soldiers, “provocative”, and the reaction of Ukrainians and Ukrainian women to this is “understandable.”
