Murmansk municipality accused of impeding professional activities of local journalists
The SeverPost journalists asked the regional prosecutor’s office to carry out an inspection and bring on a criminal case on the charges of impeding of legal professional activities of journalists.
The responsibility for legal abuse falls on Yelena Malishkina - the head of department for informational/analytical work and communication with mass media of the Murmansk Municipality or on those of higher level who charged her with this under-the-table task.

In their application to the prosecutor’s office the journalists drew examples of the local municipality hindering their work and thus violating the principle of government openness and breaching the Russian legislation.
“We ask the prosecutor’s office to carry out an inspection regarding the facts asserted in the application and interrogate relevant staff from the city administration – we shall publicize everything they will say to justify themselves. Apart from this we applied to the “All-Russia People’s Front” for supporting us in getting journalists’ legal rights fulfilled in the Murmansk region,”- explained the chief editor.
