MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 10th May, 2021) A stringer from the Ruptly video news agency was beaten up in Ukraine after he went around asking citizens about their opinion on Victory Day, Sputnik and RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan said.
"Nationalists in Ukraine beat up our stringer from Ruptly after he interviewed passers-by about their attitude to Victory Day," Simonyan wrote on her Telegram channel, adding that it is now very dangerous to work in Ukraine, particularly on Victory Day, if you are employed by Russia-affiliated media.
Many European countries mark Victory Day on May 8, but in Russia and some other countries it is traditionally celebrated on the ninth, since, according to Moscow time, the end of war agreement came into effect one minute after midnight on May 9, 1945.
