“About 50 people are standing near the Inter building at the moment. Inter employees tried to enter the building this morning, yet the blockaders did not allow them to do so. They said the blockade would not end until the channel stops broadcasting, as they suspected a Russia trail in it. The protesters said they would not set fire to tires but would not let employees inside the building either,” it said.

 

A number of fire engines and police patrols are on standby in the area.

 

About 70 Inter employees left the television center blocked by protesters at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, the channel press service said earlier.
